Default PPPD issue.

Hi there!

I have a problem with internet connection using pppd, I've always used dhcpd so i'am not very familiar with configuration pppd.

The problem is that I can establish connection with my ISP, receive IP and nothing more... No DNS is being configured and i can't ping, not only specified host like www.netbsd.org but even if I try ping IP it still fails.

In general i have my own IP from ISP but no internet connection?

It works almost good using net/userppp, i receive ip,dns and can ping, but cannot downolad any file bigger then few Kb, so i would like to try with PPPD. If it can help I will paste ALMOST working ppp.conf. (on freebsd this ppp.conf works like a charm)

In the end my PPPD configuration scripts:

playmobile:
Code:
/dev/ttyU0 460800
connect 'chat -v -f /etc/ppp/peers/playmobile.chat'
nodefaultroute
ipcp-accept-local
ipcp-accept-remote
noipv6
nodetach
noauth
local
playmobile.chat:
Code:
ABORT 'NO DIAL TONE' ABORT 'NO ANSWER' ABORT 'NO CARRIER' ABORT DELAYED
'' AT
OK ATZ
#OK     'AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","internet"'
OK ATD*99#
CONNECT ''
My internet provider is PlayMobile (Poland), modem is Huawei e169.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Best Regards
Tom.

I actually connect to Internet via PPPoE so I can't help you much, but here is the link for setting up a ppp connection, also including examples and a way to debug if something goes wrong:

http://www.netbsd.org/docs/guide/en/...practice-modem

Even though I'm not familiar with the setup, I see you didn't specify the login name and password in pap/chap-secrets file? Also, are you shure you need the nodefaultroute option in stead of defaultroute?

My provider doesn't require pap/chap authentication.
If it comes to (no)defaultroute it acts the same with both options.

Edit: Wow! I made it work . After your question about pap/chap i added 2 lines:
Code:
refuse-pap
refuse-chap
and i was able to ping . However DNS i had to configure by myself, the most important thing is that internet connection is working and i can stick to Netbsd .

Thanks s0xxx for clue.

Best Regards
Tom

Hi Tom,

Just saw you got it working, after I had prepared the post below, sounds good. But I might as well post it anyway in case some of it is helpful later on. (But don't fix what ain't broke! )

I use pppd for Internet connection. Here are the parameters that I use on NetBSD:

Code:
/dev/modem 57600
asyncmap 0
0.0.0.0:0.0.0.0    <-- may be obsolete
mru 1500
mtu 1500
kdebug 0
lock
modem
crtscts
noipdefault
defaultroute
usepeerdns
Some of these you may need/want to change or omit, but I think the "modem" and "crtscts" are important.

About DNS, its conceivable your ISP is not providing them? You could always try writing in your own DNS nameserver IP's into /etc/resolv.conf (and/or /etc/named.conf if you're running BIND, then reload it).

Also, as s0xxx suggested I think defaultroute is important. You should check what your routing looks like after dialing up with

# route show

IdOp, thanks for reply .

I made some changes and finnaly my configuration file looks like this:

Code:
/dev/ttyU0 460800
connect 'chat -v -f /etc/ppp/peers/playmobile.chat'
nodefaultroute
ipcp-accept-local
ipcp-accept-remote
noipv6
nodetach
noauth
local
0.0.0.0:0.0.0.0
crtscts
refuse-pap
refuse-chap
refuse-pap and refuse-chap are specific for my provider, at least I think so, the rest of configuration should make pppd work with Huawei e169 on NetBSD.

Option modem is opposit to local, and when i tried to use it I couldn't establish connection.

When it comes to DNS, my ISP provides DNS but PPPD doesn't configure them at all in my case. I had to go with manual configuration /etc/resolv.conf.

Finnaly, thanks for help . I was fighting with it for a week, and 10 minutes after first reply I solved the case .

Best Regards
Tom
