Description of problem:
My scripts for Ericsson GPRS phones
(www.iki.fi/mikko.rapeli/linux_gprs.html) work fine with Redhat 6.0 and
6.2 pppd's (e.g. pppd 2.3.10), but on 7.0 and 7.1 the pppd 2.4.0 IPCP
negotiations don't work for some odd reason. A friend of mine upgraded the
pppd to 2.4.1 from a source package and the problem was fixed. Please put
a newer version of pppd to your distributions.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): pppd 2.4.0
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install my scripts from http://www.iki.fi/mikko.rapeli/linux_gprs.html,
and buy an Ericsson GPRS phone ;)
2. Try to use them with pppd 2.4.0, which comes with RH7.1 for example
Actual Results: IPCP negotiations hung
Expected Results: Peer IP address negotiations should succeed
Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Fedora
Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.
Closing as "not a bug" for now.
