Can you turn on debug mode (add debug to /etc/ppp/options),
so we can get a better idea where it's failing?

Comment 3 Redacted 003 2000-02-02 14:45:59 UTC
I've made a workaround by inserting a "TIMEOUT 5" statement in the CHAT script,
just before the ATZ modem init string. This way the script doesn't wait 45
seconds before failing, but only 5. The redial starts sooner and succeeds. This
eliminates 40 seconds of annoying wait time.

Did I do something wrong in reporting? I believe this bug wasn't high on the
priority list.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-16 21:16:59 UTC
Does the ppp in rawhide/6.2beta work any better? I believe
there was *another* case where it would get itself killed.

Comment 5 Glen Foster 2001-08-01 17:43:01 UTC
Closing at customer's request.
