pppd should support all speeds in termios.h
Last modified: 2016-07-26 19:46:56 EDT
Description of problem:
Please could you add the new higher speeds in /usr/include/bits/termios.h
to pppd's sys-linux.c - it currently only supports speeds up to 1MB/s,
which makes use of new high speed serial cards rather pointless - eg.
my new Sierra Airport HSDPA / 3G / GSM card.
I applied the enclosed patch to make pppd support all speeds currently
supported by the Linux kernel, ie. up to 4MBs .
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Create an /etc/ppp/peers file containing, eg. :
Run 'pppd call XXX', where XXX is the name given the /etc/ppp/peers file.
pppd will emit the error message:
'speed 4000000 is not supported'
and silently configure the default speed (9600bps).
pppd should configure the terminal with the speed requested .
