Description winfried.altmann 2000-01-05 07:51:37 EST
There went something wrong with this new version of pppd. After figuring
out that pppd need now the optin noauth, for being compartible with the
6.0 version, there is an other error left: LCP request echo is left, and
the connection breaks down.

What went wrong with it?

With RH 6.0 pppd coexists well with diald and mgetty.

This appears to be pppd timing out while waiting for information from the peer.
If the peer is waiting for your pppd to start negotiating the connection, adding
the word "passive" to /etc/ppp/options should get things going.

If it's just a slow server, you might be able to get pppd to be more flexible
about waiting for information by adding some of these options to your
/etc/ppp/options file:
lcp-echo-failure 10
lcp-echo-interval 1
lcp-restart 1

By default, pppd will cut the line at the first echo failure, this should
increase the number of times it tries.

Please let me know if either of these options solves the problem.
