Hi. I have a problem with user PPP on FreeBSD 2.1. I hope someone
familiar with the Demon internet service here in the UK can help.
I use on demand ppp to connect to my service provider, Demon. 9 times
out of 10, when it connects, I get a 'dial ok', 'login ok' in the
log file, and then nothing. After 10 or 15 seconds it starts dialing
again. It usually gets though on the 2nd or 3rd attempt.
If I do the whole process by hand, I always get through first time. This
behaviour is consistent and repeatable.
The login process looks like this:
Some message here
multi-line message from my provider
My login script says "ogin: myhost assword: mypassword otocol: ppp"
Has anyone seen this kind of behaviour?
