I have slackware 96 (3.1) loaded on my machine, I have tryed over several months to connect to my ISP.  When I do I get the daemon dying unexpectly errors.  My ISP says they use a compression routine called Predicator 1 (pred1comp).  From research on the net I have found that this is a subset of BSD.  I have the bsd_comp module insmod'd upon startup, but this had not helped.  I can do a direct dial-in into my ISP and other location and connect fine, but not with PPP.  Any help I could get would be appreciated.  Thanks, here is the output from my debug file (note this is a lot of information - if you can not handle all this you may want to skip it):

need to know:
1. contents of /etc/ppp/options
amd/or
2. ~/.ppprc

will ISP work without compression?
thought of getting an ISP that uses a `standard' commpression algorithm? No, I'm not kidding, some ISP's think the only systems out here are from bill. post contents of the files, or e-mail them to me....

Brucekey,

Thanks for the reply, but my ISP has indeed gone away from pred1 and this seems to have cleared up the connection problem.  Thanks for your help.

check youre /etc/resolv.conf
put in your ISP's dns servers

#/etc/resolv.conf
domain yourisp.com
nameserver 123.123.123.23

change 123.123.123.23 to your real ISP dns server

then try pinging your isp again or any internet site
