ppp dial out

Hi
I am trying to configure Solaris 2.6 for ppp dial out connection.
I manage to get a connection but the ppp negotiation fails, I assume this is down to the call script I am using in /etc/uucp/Dialers, due to the following errors {BAD FCS}, {Unrecognized protocol}, with the default hayes entry I also get {Unescaped characters} as an error.  The modem is a hayes ultra smartmodem 9600, and functions correctly using tip to get a modem to modem connection, for login to another unix box.

I have tried all three of the following entries in /etc/uucp/Dialers:

#hayes  =,-,    "" \dA\pTE1V1X1Q0S2=255S12=255\r\c OK\r \EATDT\T\r\c CONNECT
hayes =,-,      "" \dAT\r\c OK\r EATDT\T\r\c CONNECT STTY=crtscts,crtsxoff
#hayes =,-,     "" P_ZERO "" \dAT\r\c OK\r EATDT\T\r\c CONNECT

Can anyone suggest a remedy?

This is definitely not a problem with your modem, but your
PPP peer wants CHAP authentication which your side rejects, and
in turn when you request PAP from the peer it requests you
to terminate the link.
As a solution, ask your peer to allow PAP passwords because
in fact your ppp daemon doesn't understand the remote's version
of CHAP (Unknown OPTION=13 l=6 ...).

Hi mrausch
Thanks for the help. I had assumed the problem was with the modem configuration due to the following paragraph in the "Sun Service Tip Sheet for Sun PPP" from the latest SunSolve CD:

"Modem problems may also generate the following messages:.......
....{BAD FCS}
      {Unrecognized protocol}
      {unescaped characters}......."

Could you also explain the other error messages {BAD FCS} and {Unrecognized protocol: d}?

I will check with the peer, in fact this is my ISP, and this whole exercise was purely an exercise to learn how to configure Solaris for PPP dial out on a sparc IPX at home and I am unlikely to actually use it for such use (especially a 9600 modem).

I will come back to grade your answer and any further info will be appreciated.
