Description farhad 1999-11-03 14:10:36 UTC
I have a Windows98/WindowsNT/Linux machine running Red Hat 6.0 version of Linux. However, it gives me a couple of errors: 1. Linuxconf, while quitting, tells me that the revision date for inetd.conf is set in the future, and so on for a number of files. 2. PPP does not work. the modem gets disconnected even before I can connect. I tried setting the PPPD timeout to a large value but it doesn't work. I have the issue of Chip that came along with the CD and I have also read all the FAQs and Documents so don;t ask me to check my settings. The same settings seem to work on Red Hat 5.2 but as soon I upgrade the Kernel to Red Hat 6.0 or Re- install RedHat 6.0, I start getting the errors, so I presume the error is in the PPP Daemon. Please Advise Me. Thank You. Yours Sincerely, Farhad Tarapore.

This bug has remained untouched for more than two months. I can only assume that Michael's suggestion has solved your problem.
