RedHat Net Config ..... Won't Dial even though it works
Posted on 1997-08-06
I have recently installed the newer RedHat 4.2 version (the 6 disk set) after I took back my Official 4.1 version. It was half the money with twice the arcs, so better deal right? Not really (No Metro-X or RedBaron) .
On the 4.1 version PPP was easy, I set up the :
Nameservers, communications (phone #, etc.) and the
expect/send area in Network Configurator (netcfg).
The same exact setup used to work great on 4.1 , but now with 4.2 it doesn't dial, (I know that it sometimes does not dial right away) but I've let it sit for a few minutes and nothing.....
PS The Modem IS configured through modem configurator, but I have used minicom to check it and I can dial to the ISP, login, etc... So I am Stuck!
Thanx in advance. I am using a standard 14.4 modem <Generic>
