Linux LCP terminated by peer

We use RHEL 5 and Digi PortServers with the RealPort Driver.

With a new version of the Digi RealPort Linux driver, the PPP connections are failing.

It says:

LCP terminated by peer (RM-V3M-s^@<M-Mt^@^@^@^@)

I can roll the RealPort driver version back and it works again.

Everything else generally works with the new driver version.

Digi did change the files in the /dev folder to be symbolic links on the new version.  Certainly a difference.

Digi is not much help.

I'm stuck on a older driver version as a result.

Very strange.  It's wierd that a nre version of the driver would manifest into this.

Not sure if I can tweak the Linux PPP settings to overcome.

The PPP version says:  pppd 2.4.4 started by root, uid 0

Attached Linux log information, and Windows (Win 7) PPP connection log (use latest 8-21 PPP log info).

Make sure PPP is logging everything, then post the log. It would help a lot if you could post a successful log from the older driver as well.

The resolution was as follows:

Starting with the version 1.9-30 of the Digi Linux RealPort driver, Digi decided to use symbolic links for device files in the /dev directory.  Earlier versions used a single normal device file name for the tty devices.  The stock Red Hat Linux PPP daemon does not like the symbolic link device names for some reason.  I reverted to the udev file used on earlier version of the RealPort driver that made actual normal device names, and all was working properly after that.
