Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 355281
ifup MyModem fails claiming a script error
Last modified: 2014-11-09 17:30:51 EST
Description of problem:
I have a bluetooth phone setup up according to the instruction at this site
Even though it is for FC5 and an T41, it is the same setup for my FC6,FC7,FC8
Dell D620. Under FC8 I get "The connect script failed (maybe wrong password or
wrong phone number)". The log only reports "Connect script failed".
However when I "wvdial Cingular" as root is connects fine, though it doesn't
update "resolve.conf" properly. I've attached the relevant part of
Both times I stopped NetworkManager, though under FC6 and FC7 this was never
/var/log/ppp *never* has anything in it. Even when I successfully connect using
wvdail. I'm guessing it's not logging for some reason.
Even though I'm using a bluetooth connection, I don't think it has anything to
do with bluetooth, since I am able to use minicom to the phone over the
/dev/rfcomm0 device and manually instruct it to dial with no problems.
Unfortunately, my laptop only has a softmodem so I cannot test ppp any other way.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup connection

/var/log/message when ppp tries to connect.
PPP doesn't write to /var/log/ppp because it is a bug, see Bug 249152 . It is
now fixed with ppp-2.4.4-6.fc9, otherwise, the logs go to /etc/ppp, but SELinux
probably prevents that. The link you gave is no longer working.. Can you find it
Also, could you please attach your /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg- of the
connection you are trying to use? (just be careful, there might be sensitive
informations in there). Thanks.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
As of FC9, I don't see this problem anymore.
