How to - Multiple PPP devices
Posted on 1998-01-09
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.
