Description Steve Wells 2002-05-09 14:29:31 EDT
Description of Problem:
ppp reports problems trying to connect with ISP (in this case Earthlink and 
others), then no longer allows a subsequent dial-up connection to work, even if 
lcp timeout extended, until the system is restarted

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How Reproducible:
once a day

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure ppp & diald for ISP
2. have program periodically (hourly) open socket to internet url
3. periodically socket will end up timing out and ppp log reveals results

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.
