If you'd like to email me your subscription username and the times at which
you unsuccessfully attempted to connect from your RedHat machine I'll gladly
take a look through the Radius logs and see if I can see anything strange.

Subject: [ILUG] Eircom Flatrate Anytime pppd question
I have been using eircom.net's "free" dialup service (1892150150:
eircomnet/eircomnet) for a few months, but recently decided to change over
to a flatrate package as my usage had increased. The dialup number for the
flatrate service ("Anytime") is 1893150150, with a specific username and
password you get on subscription.
Heres the problem:
I'm using WvDial on Redhat 9. The PPPD daemon connects fine when I use the
old free 1892150150 number, but won't connect to the flatrate 1893150150
number. Its not a username/password issue, because I've used both
connections succesfully with Windows PPP.
Has anyone come across this before? Nobody in eircom.net seems to know what
I'm talking about.
Does anyone know of any other Linux-friendly dial-up services?
