Trying to get pppd to work

Posted on 1997-05-19

I am trying to get pppd to connect with my ISP.  I dial the phone # (582-8100) then I get a prompt that says "annex:" and I have to type "2" to start a ppp session.  Next it prompts for "username" then "password".  I am having trouble making a correct chatscript file.  Can someone tell me what it should be?  Also, I am unsure exactly what should be in my chap-secrets file.  If there is a different method of using ppp rather than pppd, I'll use it.  But can anyone help me?

try this in ppp-go or ppp-on:

#!/bin/sh
/usr/sbin/pppd connect '/usr/sbin/chat -v -f "your_script" ' defaultroute crtscts modem 0.0.0.0:0.0.0.0 noipdefault lock kdebug 1 38400 /dev/modem &

and this in "your_script" :
(eg:.ppp_script)

ABORT BUSY ABORT 'NO CARRIER' '' ATZ OK ATDT"your_isp_phone_number"
annex: 2
ogin: your_login
assword: your_password
