I am trying to connect to tpg with my redhat 7.2, but I cannot get on using
pppd. I am running pppd from the command line with the scripts which
Can anyone suggest where I am going wrong. I cannot work out what is needed
after the second "ser Access Verification" from the server, anyone know. I
know I have to add to the /etc/ppp-chat-isp a assword line. But I will do
that once I have the second "ser Access Verification" working.
Anyone have a /etc/ppp-chat-isp script they use for tpg and want to share it
with me, it would save a great deal of pain!
I use TPG dial up only occasionally (being one of their ADSL customers),
and I do the PAP method of not waiting for the Username: prompts and
just heading for PAP mode.
Also, I tend to hand-roll my own connection scripts and not bother
with options files all that much. YMMV.
So, my scripts look like this:
-- start ppp-connect-tpg------
route del default
/usr/sbin/pppd /dev/modem 115200 \
noauth nocrtscts defaultroute \
lock ipcp-accept-local ipcp-accept-remote \
modem nodetach user XXXUSERNAMEXXX \
connect '/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /root/bin/ppp-chat-tpg'
-- end ppp-connect-tpg -----------
-- start ppp-chat-tpg ------------
ABORT "NO CARRIER"
ABORT "NO DIALTONE"
ABORT "NO ANSWER"
ABORT "Username/Password Incorrect"
-- end ppp-chat-tpg --------------
(sorry, that's the TPG canberra phone number in the above
script, the last one I used ...)
-- start /etc/ppp/options -----------
-- end /etc/ppp/options -------------
Then the password is in my /etc/ppp/pap-secrets file:
"XXXUSERNAMEXXX" * "XXXPASSWORDXXX"
