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):


How reproducible:
Always

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. 

Additional info:

I have the capture from the /var/log/messages:

Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2004-08-16 16:13:31 UTC
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.
