i have ppp set up and running fine through using ppp-on and ppp-off scripts

I'm trying to get diald to dial on demand - it can get it running and it sets up a SLIP interface and a default route to it - but no matter what i do, it doesnt dial up

the connect line is set in my diald.conf file and it points to the right 'chat' script - it just doesnt seem to get executed - any ideas?

HAve you checked you message logs? This should give you an indication as to why it is not working. What version are you using? If your on a new kernel why not use ppp-on -d for demand dailing?

Just a question is your diald process running?

Pls post the message log and your diald.conf

ah - i  didn't know pppd supported dial on demand.  will this work with dynamic IP?  (both local and remote dynamic)

if so, then i'll scrap diald, if not then I'll post my configs and messages logs

pppd does support it for Dynamic Ips both local and remote. Diald is only really needed when you need the extra filtering abilities it offers such as in a network modem server. For a single pc pppd work just fine.

Have you looked at the diald HOWTO at http://www.linuxdoc.org/ ?

If you follow the directions in the HOWTO, it's a no-brainer.  Just cut-and-paste the example files from the HOWTO, adjust the IP addresses, and you're good to go.

nevermind - i dumped diald and am using pppd on its own now.  it is a network server (using IP MASQ for the LAN) - and it now works fine using pppd's dial on demand.
