I have a Linux server and am able to dial into our corporate network using pppd. The problem is that during days the server is used as an x-server and the lines are used to dial-out on and unless I comment out the mgetty entries in the inittab file the connection gets killed by pppd I think.

I found the problem to be just that. I was running pppinit from a different machine and it was creating a lock file for device modem. So it was creating a lock file for the wrong device.

I modified pppinit to lock the appropriate device and things are working well now.

Thanks
