Description Inger Karin Haarbye 2003-01-20 11:52:44 UTC
Description of problem: 
 
I use neat to configure ISDN-connection to my ISP. This seems to work, but 
when I try to activate the connection it fails. 
 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
redhat-config-network-1.1.90-1 
 
How reproducible: 
All the time 
 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Configure isdn-card and connection with 'neat'. 
2. Try to activate the connection 
3. 
     
Actual results: 
Error message about 'cannot activate device isdn0' (first time), if I try 
again I get no error message from 'neat', but 'Jan 20 12:45:24 opuntia kernel: 
isdn_ppp_bind: Can't find a (free) connection to the ipppd daemon' in 
/var/log/messages. In both cases no connection to ISP. 
 
Expected results: 
 
 
Additional info: At boot setting up isdn0 fails.

Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2003-02-05 12:57:05 UTC
reassigning

Comment 2 Ngo Than 2003-02-05 16:28:26 UTC
which isdn card do you have? Is it supported from neat?
Could you please send to me following files:

- /etc/sysconfig/isdncard
- /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ipppX


Thanks


Comment 3 Inger Karin Haarbye 2003-02-16 23:38:59 UTC
It has been supported in earlier versions. It is possible to get it work "the 
old way", with scripts and so on. I usually don't use isdn, I have ADSL. I 
still have my old ISDN-card: Teles 16.3C PnP with HFC-chip. 
Everything in /var/log/messages looks OK until dial.

Comment 4 Ngo Than 2003-02-17 23:49:08 UTC
Harald: redhat-config-network added wrong isdn device in config file.
The device should be ippp by ENCAP=syncppp. and isdn by ENCAP=rawip

it's a bug in redhat-config-network. moving it to redhat-config-network

Comment 5 Inger Karin Haarbye 2003-02-26 08:23:13 UTC
The problem is still here in beta5: No possibility to use ISDN with neat. 

Comment 8 Inger Karin Haarbye 2003-04-11 11:51:59 UTC
The problem is still here in Shrike (Red Hat 9): No possibility to use ISDN 
with neat. 

Comment 9 Inger Karin Haarbye 2003-05-18 23:25:40 UTC
Same problem with Cambridge (Red Hat 9.0.90) Alpha1. neat uses device isdn0 
and not ippp0. This just doesn't work. 
Neat/ISDN has been working fine with earlier versions of Red Hat.  

Comment 10 Inger Karin Haarbye 2003-06-02 17:46:16 UTC
It looks like ippp0 is used now, but when I try to activate the interface, I 
get a traceback. Maybe this should be filed as a separate bug, but I really 
don't know what causes what here... 

Comment 11 Inger Karin Haarbye 2003-06-02 17:48:22 UTC
Created attachment 92095 [details]
Traceback when trying to activate ISDN-card with neat.

Red Hat beta (alfa2) Cambridge 9.0.91.

Comment 12 Inger Karin Haarbye 2003-07-24 09:28:00 UTC
The problem with wrong device seems to be corrected in Severn.

I still can't get "neat" to work properly with isdn (it is not dialing), but I
suppose this is a different problem, bug #100677
