I'm trying to setup PPP on Redhat Linux 4.2. I get the following message
in my syslog "connect script failed". Also I'm not able to see the ppp
interface using 'ifconfig' command without any option. If I use it with
ppp0 option which is the name of my ppp interface I get the following
data :

ppp0     Link encap:Point-Point Protocol
         inet addr:0.0.0.0  P-t-P:0.0.0.0 Mask:0.0.0.0
         UP POINTOPOINT  MTU:1500  Metric:1
         RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
         TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
When I boot it says PPP is registered and I'm running pppd. I also
specified the ip addresses. I'm new to ppp. If anybody knows anyhitng
please help

Enable debug on pppd (keyword "debug" on startup script) and on whatever you use to dial. If I remember well, you are using chat. Add a "-v" option. And you'll find lots of information in /var/log/messages. I think I've seen some versions of chat with "-f" switch broken...

If you can't solve the problem, you will have to give us more details...

Good luck.

can you hear the modem pick up and dial?  try using a terminal program like minicom to use the modem to dial out to a bbs or something, to test your modem configuration.

also, something that helped me get ppp set up:  try doing the connection manually, w/o the script.  there's help in the howto on doing this.
