Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 52044
Can't activate ippp0 or dial ISDN-connection
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
Description of Problem:
I have used redhat-internet-config to set up my isdn-card - Teles 16.3C PnP
(after configuring it with isapnp) - and to set up two providers. This is
done - and I have checked "allow all users to enable and disable this
But how do I dial??
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Setting up ippp0 and providesr with redhat-config-network.
2.Trying to find a "GUI-method" to connect to the configured provider (with
the configured isdn-card).
As 2) is failing, I try "ifup ippp0".
Sorry - this system lacks PPP kernel support.
Check whether you configured at least the ippp0 device!
It is possible to manually modprobe the card, I can then use "ifup
ippp0"and "isdnctrl dial ippp0" (and "isdnctrl dial ippp1" for the second
First, I expect a GUI like isdn-config to help me enable/disable the
device, and dial.
Anyway - as I can't find this, I expect "ifup ippp0" to set up my isdn-card
As users should be allowed to enable and disable the device, I think "ifup"
and "isdnctrl" doesn't make any sense.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax.
It's fixed in isdn4k-utils-3.1-45. You will find it in next rawhide release.
Use kisdndock to dial to your provider. You find this program in kdenetwork-
