I'm trying to connect to my ISP using the Zonet ZCF-5610 compact flash modem card on my SL-5500. It will recognize the card, dial the ISP, then hang in "authenticating" mode. Is there a conf script I need to modify? Can connect to this ISP fine using Linux on desktop.

I'd be tempted to see what kind of authentication your Z is trying to use, and what your ISP wants (PAP or CHAP), also, compare the scripts on the Z and on your Linux box - I had the very same problem with my uni dialup.

Eventually I tracked it down to the Z sending a line feed or the such at the end of the chat script meaning that the ppp comms never started at the other end (instead a login prompt was sent).

To fix this I did the following:

In the file in /etc/ppp/peers/ there is a line which goes:
connect '/usr/sbin/chat .... CONNECT'

I changed this to:
connect '/usr/sbin/chat .... CONNECT "~" '

Note that the space after the "~" is needed!!

By way of explanation, the ~ symbol is always the first thing to be sent in a ppp connection. So this change makes the Z wait for the ppp connection to start, then sends nothing back (the space).

Hope this helps,
