Hello again,
=20
Since using FreeBSD as my gateway I haven=92t had any problems apart =
from
one, every so often in the middle of the night I would get disconnected,
and the modem would start redialling, as I=92ve had problems dialling in
(I have to dial several times until it produces the right tone) this
gets annoying and wakes me up in the middle of the night, not nice , the
isp I use is BTconnect ; I=92ve been able to stay connected for a week
sometimes using my windows 2000 machine. So I=92m wondering what I=92m =
doing
wrong, the option I use in ppp is:
=91ppp =96nat =96ddial btconnect=92=20
=20
4:29PM  up 4 days, 22:39, 3 users, load averages: 0.28, 0.24, 0.37
USER             TTY      FROM              LOGIN@  IDLE WHAT
dialout          a1       ppp -nat -ddial  Mon11PM     - -
=20
as you see, I=92ve had to redial last night at 11.
Any help is great!
=20
Regards,
=20
William Cooper
