I am now using RH 4.1, I had used RH 3.03 and Slackware 3.0 wich both worked well. Here is what I now get when I try to dial up. As you can see I put as much error logging on as I could so this is quite long. If soneone would examine this and give me some help.

 Thank you so much in advance.

Watch Question

Commented:
Many dialup servers only enter PPP after "ppp\n" is sent to them.
Are you sure yours doesn't?

Commented:
I know my ISP (www.netheaven.com) starts the pppd because when I use minicom to establish the connection after I login I get
"pppd started between xxx.xx.xx.xxx and yyy.yyy.yy.yy ##$#@$# $@$#@$$%$#>.%#$%^" {or what ever the gobbldygook it shows on the screen when it is running} Then it hangs up, I check the log and another LCP error. I did NOT have this trouble with RH3.03 or Slackware '96.
Commented:
use pppd vervion 2.0f or later (i use 2.3B3). ver2.2.0 don't work with recent kernels (from kernel 2.0.18 i think)
email me if you want me to send my ppp-on script for example.

bye

Let me give that a try.

Commented:
The answer to this question is to add "silent" to the Option
file in "/etc/ppp" what is happening is pppd is trying to transmit LCP packets to initiate a connection until a valid LCP packet is received from the peer, by adding "silent" to options file it will not try to do this.

This is also good for Cable Modems
