A problem with the pppd

First of all you are trying to use kernel ppp.
This was completely rewritten because it was so hard to
configure and debug and it now called User ppp.
ppppd (IE: kernel ppp) was kept around for backwards compatibility.
For all practical purposes its dead and just waiting to be removed.
You will get better help here if you change to user ppp.
The install guide at www.a1poweruser.com has a step by step
instructions for seting up user ppp callback function.

Subject: A problem with the pppd
Help me, please, with the pppd. The problem is the next.
I want to connect to Internet Service Provide (ISP) with a callback.
I use the pppd and the chat with the next scripts, which are
# pppd script
connect "/usr/bin/chat -v -f
# chat script login.chat.script.prostointernet.callback
# It is one line really
ABORT BUSY ABORT 'NO CARRIER'
TIMEOUT 300 CONNECT ""
TIMEOUT 30 sername:-\\r-sername: login
TIMEOUT 30 sword: password
The first step goes well: my side connects with the ISP and
authentication is done successfully.
After authentication and querying a callback, pppd hangs up the
But then pppd exits.
The ISP calls me back after some time. But there is no pppd already,
nobody is waiting for the incoming call.
(Without callback I have no problem.)
What do I wrong?
