Description Tim Waugh 2000-01-24 11:17:08 UTC
Using rp3-config to dial my ISP doesn't work.

rp3-debug says:
login: Looks like a login prompt.
Sending: zapata.freeserve.co.uk

Password: Looks like a password prompt.
Sending: (password)

Entering PPP mode.

Async interface address is unnumbered (FastEthernet0)

Your IP address is MTU is 1500 bytes

Looks like a welcome message.
Starting pppd at Mon Jan 24 11:17:16 2000
PPP daemon has died! (exit code = 10)
Disconnecting at Mon Jan 24 11:17:17 2000

/var/log/messages says:
Jan 24 11:17:17 turmoil pppd[4077]: Peer is not authorized to use remote
Jan 24 11:17:17 turmoil pppd[4077]: Connection terminated.

Linuxconf, and then /sbin/ifup pppX, it works fine.

Doublechecked for 2 ISPs.

Do you have any other interfaces present on the workstation?  You should only
see this error if you have another network interface up, or if you've somehow
configured pppd to require the other end to have a specific address other than

Is this fixed in the latest initscripts and ppp releases?
