Description jxdxbx 1999-12-29 06:46:30 UTC
With Redhat 6.1 I've been unable to properly install PPP.  All
the guidebooks tell me to do it from linuxconfig, which I do.

I set up the connection as well as the DNS name.  All this I
do by the book.

But, PPP doesn't work unless I /also/ set it up with this other
configuration utility,  on the Internet menu of Gnome, called
Dial Up Manager or something.  Even if I set up a connection
with linuxconfig and it lists it, it will always give me the
"Set up new connection" dialog box.  I eventually find a way to
set everything up, doubling my work, and get PPP to work.  Then
I put in a secondary DNS address which later turns out to be
invalid, making PPP not work again.  I keep going into both
programs and attempting to get rid of this spurious information,
and I do.  But then I go back to check if it's gone, and lo, it's
still there.  I cannot alter the DNS addresses.

I am now downloading what claims to be an update of linuxconfig.
I am doing this through windows because it works and linux
doesn't.  I only hope it doesn't screw everyrthing up royally,
like when I tried installing wheel-mouse support, and midnight
commander wouldn't work anymore.

this should be fixed both in 6.2, and in pinstripe, where rp3 is the default
tool for setting up ppp.
