Description neilc1976 2000-07-07 17:08:41 EDT
I have to dial manually into my ISP because it requires extra authentification that changes every time I dial in.

I can dial into my ISP with minicom and it seems to login just fine but then I try to start pppd and it doesn't work.  I can use "ifconfig" and it 
shows the ppp connection but "route -n" doesn't show a defaultroute so I can only ping the server and nothing else.  I think that the defaultroute 
needs to be set but nothing I have done has worked. 

I can connect fine to the ISP on windows becuase you can setup an initial terminal window when dialing in.

Please Help!

How exactly are you starting pppd?  If you're starting pppd manually, are you
using the "defaultroute" option?
Comment 2 neilc1976 2000-07-12 16:05:06 EDT
yes, I start pppd using the defaultroute option "pppd -default..."
Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-09-12 15:35:52 EDT
If you're starting pppd manually, you'll probably need to also use the "modem",
"crtscts", and possibly the "noauth" options.
Comment 4 neilc1976 2000-09-14 11:56:51 EDT
I tried using those options also but pppd still doesn't startup correctly.
Can you give me the full pppd command so I can enter it exactly as it should be?
Comment 5 Thomas Woerner 2004-08-13 05:24:12 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.
