I configured a ppp connection using linuxconf for
connecting to the IBM/ATT Global Network Internet
service provider (www.ibm.net). The chat script
it generates has the line: "CONNECT" "". This
causes a carriage return to be sent to the ISP which
prevents PPP from working with this particular
ISP. If I delete the trailing "" or replace it
with "\c" the connection comes up just fine. It
would be nice if there was an option on linuxconf
to suppress the carriage return after a connect.
If we added a separate checkbox option to linuxconf's chat script
generation for every possible brokenness from every possible
provider, we would have too many checkboxes to navigate...
Instead, we're working on a more general solution that we hope
will work for more people without clicking any checkboxes at
