Description Ajit Dixit 2000-06-10 12:17:41 EDT
PPP was working in previous version of Redhat 6.0. But in RH6.1 & RH6.2, I
cannot connect to internet & have network services on simultaneously.
PPP gives the following log :

Jun 10 21:31:13 localhost pppd[2283]: pppd 2.3.11 started by root, uid 0
Jun 10 21:31:13 localhost pppd[2283]: Using interface ppp0
Jun 10 21:31:13 localhost pppd[2283]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/cua0
Jun 10 21:31:13 localhost pppd[2283]: Peer is not authorized to use remote
address 202.54.115.139
Jun 10 21:31:13 localhost pppd[2283]: Connection terminated.
Jun 10 21:31:13 localhost pppd[2283]: Connect time 0.0 minutes.
Jun 10 21:31:13 localhost pppd[2283]: Sent 177 bytes, received 199 bytes.
Jun 10 21:31:13 localhost pppd[2283]: Exit.

I have tried setting noauth in the options file, but still it doesn't help.
If network services are stopped then it connects.

Do you have a default route set?  What do you mean by network services?
Comment 2 dan 2000-07-05 11:48:03 EDT
In the absence of a reply from the original poster:-

I have got a default route set, but I have tried without, and it makes no
difference.
The way I normally disable networking is to eject the PCMCIA network card,
however running the /etc/rc.d/init.d/network script with the stop option.
Comment 3 Thomas Woerner 2004-08-13 05:23:01 EDT
Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Fedora
Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.

Closing as "not a bug" for now.
