Description of problem:
Configured my adsl the same as in 7.2 but cannot get ppp0 to talk to ethernet card (works fine in 7.2). Have tried both upgrading from 7.2 to 7.3
installing 7.3 from scratch. Modem shows to connect but no traffic in tcpdump from ppp0.
nic - kne110tx
modem - speedstream
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.activate ppp0, shows active, gets ip from isp
3. no traffic on ppp0
If you use monitor in redhat-config-network, it should work. It's a bug in
Does not work with monitor either. I can get the connection to work by connecting to my ISP and setting the default route to my ISP and dev
ppp0. Used the ip route procedure in bug #64574.
is there any real traffic? can you browse the web? are you really connected?
Yes I am really connected. After the adsl connection is made I run ifconfig to
get the default gateway for my ppp0 connection. I then do the following:
/sbin/ip route delete default
/sbin/ip route add default via xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx dev ppp0
where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the gateway address from ifconfig.
After this, I have access to the internet.
I have no problems doing:
# tcpdump -i ppp0
"cannot get ppp0 to talk to ethernet card" - what do you mean by this? no ppp
