Since the last post I have updated my system:
QNX localhost 6.00 2002/01/31-08:18 ASPEN shle
Have you tried 6.1patch A to see if the problem still exists
I’m running on aspen and the procnto is from jan 31 this year.
the pppd I’m running is from jan 22 20001.
When running PPPD on 6.1 x86 the pppd options were all different - but it
I had an option named “require-ns” - which is no longer supported.
The options I’ve been trying to use now is usepeerdns.
When I moved to SH4 (mid 2001 code base) the whole thing still worked but
I tried to slay pppd I got a SIGSEGV in io-net.
Because of this I updated procnto, pppd and pppmgr to the latest versions
rest of the codebase to around august 2001.
After this the “updetach” stopped working.
This may be because I don’t get a DNS and therefore PPPD does not consider
the negotiation completed.
If I start PPPD in the background I can still ping IP addresses on the
internet ( I do a ping on a different machine to get the IP number) but the
DNS lookups obvioulsy does not work.
using the +resconf option I don’t see that the /etc/resolv.conf gets
updated. There is supposedly a CS_RESOLVE environment variable which the
system might use instead so I also tried the confstr option but it still
does not work.
When I run the following:
pppd connect “/bin/chat -v -f /home/rv/myscript” defaultroute +resconf
115200 updetach /dev/ser3
I get the following:
Serial connection established.
Using interface ppp0
Connect: ppp0 <–> /dev/ser3
LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests
this exact thing worked with previous version of PPPD/procnto
Updated pppd as follows:
pppd → 22nd Jan. 2002 patch
npm-pppmgr.so → 22nd Jan.2002 patch
Now I don’t get the SIGSEGV’s in io-net anymore but now PPPD is failing
Before, I was able to establish a connection although it crashed when
Now I can dial the ISP but I will not get a DNS and PPPD will not
detach. If I start PPPD in the background I can ping ip-addresses
(gateway function working) but
obviosly I can’t ping a named server.
Does the ppp0 interface indicate a completed neogiation (ie. you have an
address and the address of the point you’re connected to)? Can you ping
IP’s of machines outside of the gateway?
the flags I use this time are:
/dev/ser3 updetach +resconf defaultroute +stdinsecret name <name
idle 300 also tested:
/dev/ser3 updetach resconf defaultroute +stdinsecret name idle
300 usepeerdns confstr
before I had the require-ns flag set but it does not seem to be
Have you tried running with the debug flag on, and checking the syslog for
ideas on what might be going wrong (required syslogd of course). Have you
tried forcing the nameserver using the “nameserver” option?
