    Troubleshooting wvdial

    Hi,

    I'm trying to connect to my ISP with wvdial. I ran wvdialconfig and edited some files to enter my username and password. It gives me the following error. I double-checked that my username and password were correct. What could be going on? I'm running wvdial on debian woody. Tell me if there is more information you need.

    Thanks.

    hello,
    try putting the option 'noauth' in the wvdial options.
    By wvdial do you mean wvdial.conf in /etc?

    I triied adding the line

    noauth

    into the wvdial.conf

    I logged out, rebooted and it gave the same error message.

    hello,
    i may have been wrong about the /etc/wvdial.conf, it has been a good year since i used it, try putting it in /etc/ppp/options - i am not sure if it is the problem, but it has helped others.

    Hi,

    I added that noauth line and it did not help.

    I tried using the following help
    http://axion.physics.ubc.ca/ppp-linux.html#PPPOptions

    With it I discovered my ISP is using pap. For some reason, it doesn't accept the way I am presenting my username and password. Someone suggested I try using the program 'miniterm' to connect to my isp and manually input my username and password. That worked. The problem is miniterm doesn't set up pap afterwards or establish tcp/ip and anyway I would prefer and automated system.

    I don't know what to do. *I guess I'll read up on wvdial and ppp. If anyone has any suggestions I'm glad to try them out.

    Thanks.

    /usr/sbin/pppd /dev/ttyS1 57600 debug connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v * '' *ATD5555555 *CONNECT * '' *ogin: *<yourusername> *assword: *<yourpassword>"

    In case anybody cares that was what I used to finally connect.



    I don't really know why that worked... but it did.

    Thanks for the leads.
