Description of Problem:When the script functions correctly under kppp and
indicates logging onto network...the whole kppp environment crashes...and
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How Reproducible:Every time I run the script....
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Under programs - system - in the Gnome enviro...Go to Internet Config...

compuserve..With a valid login name and id:....
3. Under kppp configuration edit and go to login script...Send a ^m,
Expect a Host Name:, Send CIS, exper User ID:, Send xxxxx,xxxx where x is
your account number...sen NOINT/PPP:CISPPP, expect Password: Send xxxxxxx
Password that is applicable...And at last send ^M. in the same are the DNS
is 184.108.40.206 and I have used auto configuration, the rest is straight
forward...default gateway...Dynamic IP, and a script based dialup....
Actual Results:The kppp box indicates logging onto network and then the
kppp box turns grey...and you cannot close it or the logger...and the
system locks solid...I have tried to use the YoLinux tutorial using PPP
with Compuserve and no luck all I get is a valid loopback and no
compuserve connection...odd eh?I have two phone lines if you would like to
test a few variables....
Expected Results:Getting on the net...so I can hook up with some linux
