Description of problem:
I am trying to set up a PPP for dial in from remote sites. The plan is to dial
directly to a modem, with mgetty monitoring the port. The modem will pick up,
user will login and as part of the user set up, a script will be run that will
automatically start pppd. Right now the connection dies after about 30 seconds
because the modem will hang up.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.dial in from remote laptop running Windows 98, using Hyperterminal.
2.Enter username and password at the prompt
3.pppd will start, then the connection will die after 30 seconds.
Actual Results: Modem will pick up successfully, connection is established.
pppd will start, but die out after 30 seconds.
Expected Results: Have the pppd connection stay up, and also have the PPP
server assign the remote laptop an IP address for network access.
I have the capture from the /var/log/messages:

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.
