Can't connect to my dial-up ISP's

Just installed RTP on a partition on an HP Pavilion.
Used XOSL free utility to manage dual boots.
Works fine.

In any event, I have reconfigured to load the big IP stack, dialed into
2 different ISP’s but can’t negotiate the PPP session. I use interactive
logon
to at least get to the point where the ISP is sending me the PPP polls.
In every case I get the SIGHUP message. Both my ISP’s are accessible
with my
Windows 98 config.

What am I doing wrong?

Could you start phdialer with -d (in a Terminal, type in “phdialer -d”)
and email me the syslog output ?

Sorry, used QNX 2.1 in a commercial environment for about 6 years but
can’t figure out how to get you the log output (can’t even find the log) under
RTP.
Did run the dialer with “-d” and saw more verbose trace in the window.
Looks like I exhaust the retry sending the request…

Pulled down the docs on phdialer, pppd, phlip and io-net but not sure what
next.
Any thoughts?
Thanks.

Solved the problem. Was browsing qnxstart.com newsgroup and found someone
recommending that a line speed not be specified in the phdialer window.
Now the problem becomes one of not being able to throttle back my modem
to a slower speed. (You see, my USR 56K modem performs poorly at
high speed - so much error correction going on behind the scenes that it is
actually
better to run it below 38400. Probably a function of my rural location.)

Any thoughts…?

I believe there are some register in modem that you could play
with to “stop auto detect speed”… Check your modem manual,
it’s probably a “ats??=?” command.

You could qtalk to the modem, set it, write it in, so next time
it will always be there.
