PPP Connection on RH4.0 Box

I have tried hard on making ppp connection on my rh4.0 to my ISP. I can manually dial to the ISP using minicom and make ppp connection. After enter the "ifconfig" or "route -n" command, everything seems alright. However, I then try to check the connecting by "ping" the ISP or other address, it just send a little package of data out but never back. Moreover, I cannot use other services like ftp as well.  I have checked the file "resolv.conf" and sure the information on that file is right.  Suppose it is my own machine problem because I can connect smoothly with my win95 machine.  Is there any problem with my kernel? I install the redhat system on every default option. Did I missed anything important?  Thank you for any help.

Get the program ezppp from http://www.linuxos.org, It will set it all up for you and also I STRONGLY recommend reading the PPP-How To if you havent done so already. If youre running X then get the program EZPPP from the same site

try netcfg in X-windows to add a ppp-interface, configure that and activate the interface.

After I check out everything step by step and review the log message, I found that the problem is caused by my network card. The card was the default route so that data are transfer to the card. After I deactivate the card, the dial up process become normal. Anyway, thanks for all comments and suggestion.  BTW, how could I get so many on line resources (like get EZPPP) while I can't online?  =P

you may need to make sure that your ISP has in fact
logged you in per the contents of your ppp_chat file.  In other
words, make sure that you have included the correct prompts
given by the server upon connection.   If you don't include the
correct prompts in your ppp_chat file, the connection will just
sit there as the server waits for a login name and password.
