    Unhappy

    Thanks

    I get the status of the modem saying CONNECTED but then i get the message that COULDN't start.

    I just get this and nothing else.

    Is it that i have to pass some parameter to it or something.

    If you are trying to connect to your ISP as a normal user (i.e. not root), then you may need to make pppd suid. Try this (as root):

    chmod +s `which pppd`

    It would also help if you posted error messages etc. as we can only guess at your problem.

    Thanks tiger



    chmod -s `which pppd` didn't work

    it says
    sending termination signal 15
    and then says
    Operation timed out , PPPD couldn't start.
