Description piller 1999-10-06 21:14:41 EDT
Upgraded from RH6.0 to RH6.1.  Now when I start my ppp0
interface to make a modem connection to my ISP it fails
every time on the first attempt but is successful on the
second try.
Worked fine before the upgrade.
Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1999-10-07 15:57:59 EDT
I believe that this is a bug in pppd.  I have not yet isolated it.
This did not show up on my system until I upgrade to ppp-2.3.10
from ppp-2.3.9.  The cause of the problem is not apparant from
inspecting a diff between ppp-2.3.9 and ppp-2.3.10.
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-10-07 15:59:59 EDT
changed component
Comment 3 olorin 1999-10-09 05:12:59 EDT
I was running ppp-2.3.7 before the upgrade from 6.0 -> 6.1, and the
upgrade caused the same problems for me. Ie, it dials, connects,
negotiates ppp & hangs up & redials & connects again.
The upgrade logs show nothing except that the ppp-2.3.7 docs were
unsucessfully removed.
Comment 4 mcmillan 1999-10-21 22:15:59 EDT
I was having a slightly different problem with pppd. That is,
it successfully connected, DNS lookup and ping worked O.K., but
TCP connections would hang (most of the time).

Here's a possible clue: I notice that in the system log, the kernel
claims to be running PPP version 2.3.7, while the pppd is version
2.3.10. Perhaps the wrong PPP support was compiled into the kernel.
Anyway, reverting to pppd version 3.2.7 solved the problem for me.
Comment 5 Gabriele Turchi 1999-10-25 12:53:59 EDT
Same problem on a RH6.1 installed from scratch, same ppp version
2.3.7 log. Once (actually no more investigations done) pppd
activated himself with wrong IP address for local side, assuming
the ethernet one. Obviously no routing possible...
[P.S.: sorry, I don't speak english...]

I have the very same problem since upgrading from RH5.2 to RH6.1

Please try
ftp://people.redhat.com/johnsonm/ppp-2.3.10-3.i386.rpm
and see if it fixes this problem for you.
Comment 8 marc.lefranc 1999-11-08 05:27:59 EST
I have been testing ppp-2.3.10-3 for the last two days and it seems
to fix the problem completely for me.
Comment 9 piller 1999-11-08 09:02:59 EST
ppp-2.3.10-3 is now working for me as well. Thanks.
Comment 10 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-09 09:27:59 EST
Thanks y'all for testing!  The -3 release that went out as an
official errata item is the same package that I made available
for you, so no need to download the new package.
