Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:33:21 EDT
Description of Problem:
If connection name in "Dialup configuration" has ampersand sign then wvdial doesn't work when started with the "RH PPP dialer". If the connection is closed by clicking on close then wvdial processes are left,using up processor time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add dialup connection to "Dialup Configuration" with name "U-Net_C&W"
2. Attempt to connect using RH PPP dialer
Connection fails to be made
Modem should dial but doesn't.
/var/log/messages has some error messages including this line:
... WvDial: Warning Section [Dialer U-Net_C] does not exist in wvdial.conf.
