I have Mandrake 9.1 installed and can't get on internet.
The modem is external US Robotics 56K FAX EXT Ger & CCITT on COM1.
The ppp and kppp are installed.
Dialer and modem configured properly.
On CONNECT modem dials the ISP number and connects to server.

And then it dies with the following log:
Feb 6 10:47:04 localhost pppd[2280]: pppd 2.4.1 started by root, uid 0
Feb 6 10:47:04 localhost pppd[2280]: using channel 2
Feb 6 10:47:04 localhost pppd[2280]: Using interface ppp0
Feb 6 10:47:05 localhost pppd[2280]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/tts/0

Feb 6 10:47:08 localhost pppd[2280]: sent [LCP ConfReq id=0x1 <asyncmap

Feb 6 10:47:35 localhost pppd[2280]: LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests
Feb 6 10:47:35 localhost pppd[2280]: Connection terminated.

I tried a lot of things (PAP/CHAR, permission change, two different ISPs,
tried dialing from KNOPPIX 3.2, reinstall)
and nothing.

I am open for suggestions!

tnx SerVlad
