hi! I have a system running Linux RedHat 9 server with Win98 clients. I set up a external modem to dial up on demand using IP masquerading. Everything worked fine. I needed to change my ISP service provider so I deleted the modem connection and configured it again with new ISP details and it would not dial out. I then deleted the modem connection and put old ISP details back and it works. Why can I not change ISP details? The files I'm checking are ifcfg-ppp0

Make sure the details from your new ISP are correct.

if you have a different login/password you may need to update /etc/ppp/pap-secret as well..

im assuming you meant wvdial.conf right?


if your using wvdial it should handle the name/pass for you, but dial on demand usually does use the files below so I'm not sure of your setup

/etc/ppp/pap-secrets
or ppossibly
/etc/ppp/chap-secrets
