I am running Debian Linux on an Ultra 5 and using it as a dial up router. It
works great except for one very odd problem: after a reboot the first
dial-up fails. All other attempts succeed.
This occurs with both the stock 2.4.18 kernel, and a custom 2.4.19-rc1
kernel with or without the ppp modules statically linked. The version of
pppd is the latest.
The logs show that 'chat' is establishing the connection (message is Serial
connection established), but after this I get absolutely no pppd messages
until I kill pppd or turn off the modem. This is with all debug options
Google does not return anything useful.
Thanks in advance,
