Description MIchael Kolmodin 2002-12-03 18:12:12 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021016

Description of problem:
I tried to use wvdial, but it does not work. The call is established, but it
never starts the dialog with the terminal server

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# wvdial --version
WvDial 1.41: Copyright (c) 1998-2000 Worldvisions Computer Technology, Inc.



How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set up Wvdial to call my ISP
2.Watch results, it never gets the prompt (but the call is established)
3.
	

Actual Results:  No connection

Expected Results:  Connection...

Additional info:

The terminal server requires some <CR> for baudrate recognition before it sends
a prompt; from the logs I guess that wvdial fails to issue those when it doesn't
get any prompt. As this is a fairly common situation, a patch would be nice.

Relevant part of kermit script, which works once the call is established:

output  \13\10
input 10 name:
if FAILURE  { output \13\10, input 10 name: }
if FAILURE  { output \13\10, input 10 name: }
if FAILURE exit 1 "No prompt"
lineout my-username
input 10 word:
lineout my-password
input 10 >
lineout ppp

Further on, the chat approach does not work for me - my USB-connected serial
ports always drops DTR when control is transferred from chat to pppd (the driver
does not support setserial). So I'd really need wvdial. As for now, I'm using a
kermit script as pty argument to pppd, but this is pressing configuration tools
to, and partly beyond, the limits.
