How to - Multiple PPP devices

I have setup one PPP connection using netcfg tool provided with RH4.2. However I am unable to properly setup a second ppp device/interface to connect to yet another different site.

I followed the exact same procedure. I appended the new DNS addresses to the existing list in the Names menu. Added the routing address and entered the proper chat script.

When I start this (ppp1), it logs the usual stuff in log file:

pppd started for ppp1 on /dev/modem .....
Then it goes normally thru the process of authentication. Then suddenly it says:

using device ppp0
ppp0 --> /dev/modem

Then it hangs there and times out saying something like
LCP failed COnfigRequests.

I dont understand this and also the fact that why ppp1 changed to ppp0 near the end of the process. Please help.

make sure that you got the right link to your devices such as
/dev/modem for /dev/ppp0
/dev/modem1 for /dev/ppp1

then configure netcfg of redhat to be two devices but using different modem devices, so when you try to run the other modem it will not connect to /dev/modem it will try to run the link which is the second ppp device /dev/modem1

hope this helps you out
