Linux 6.2 dials into my Linux 6.2 PPP server just fine and gets an IP. I can ping both ways. I can establish an FTP session just fine. But when I try and establish a Telnet session I get 1 of 2 scenarios:
A. If I use a username/pwd that is setup as a PPP account using the ppp-login shell listed below I get the 'text of the day' but thats it. I am not returned to the prompt but I am also not dropped from the system. I just dont get to do anything. Early on I was able to navigate the filesystem but I must have changed something!
B. If I same username/pwd but change the shell script to Linux's default (usr/lib/linuxconf/lib/ppplogin) I get strange characters posted across my screen for about 60 seconds and then I am dropped. The message file shows:
pppd 2.3.10 started by burke, uid 509
Using interface ppp1
Connect: ppp1 <--> /dev/pts/1
LCP: Timeout sending Config-Requests
I suspect the strange characters are the Config-Requests.
What I want an answer to is why in scenario 1 do I not get returned to a prompt so I can navigate the filesystem? Below are my ppp files:
PPP-LOGIN FILE ON LINUX PPP SERVER:
exec /usr/sbin/pppd -detach silent modem crtscts $LOCIP:$RMTIP
PPP-ON FILE ON LINUX DIALING STATION:
export TELEPHONE ACCOUNT PASSWORD
exec /usr/sbin/pppd debug lock modem crtscts /dev/ttyS0 38400 \
asyncmap 20A0000 escape FF kdebug 0 $LOCAL_IP:$REMOTE_IP \
noipdefault netmask $NETMASK defaultroute connect $DIALER_SCRIPT
PPP-ON-DIALER ON LINUX DIALING STATION IS USING THE DEFAULT FILE AVAILABLE FROM LINUX.
Please let me know if you need more info! Thanks
