i'm relatively new to freebsd and so far i'm delighted with the
performance and stability. i have a continual problem with ppp
though and i've searched the documentation and contacted my isp for
an answer. maybe you have a suggestion. there are really 2 separate
1. authentication is like rolling the dice. it seems about a 50/50
chance that i get the ppp in capitals. once there, my connection
with my isp is rock-solid. but half the time i get an error (some
strange machine code) during what looks like the first stage of
authentication (the lower case p's).
2. (maybe related to number 1?) when i first modified ppp.conf i
could not get my modem to be recognized using /dev/cuaa0, 1, etc.
(although my modem *is* connected to a serial port). so i just sort
of stumbled on using ttyd0, which works fine except for the problem
any help you can offer would be appreciated.
