If more people would SHARE information on PPP, it would
make a better world...

: We have a single SS2 to act as our web & ftp servers and route some traffic

: patch (101425-04). Great!!! Now it connects!!! But, faithfully, after
: 30 or 40 seconds each time, it disconnects!
: The solution:
: Someone wrote me and told me that if the other side is using Morningstar

: It was one of many suggestions, and since I didn't yet know the package on
: the other end, I noted it, and (evidently, since I can't find it) trashed
: the message.
: Well, meanwhile, someone reads over my logfile and says that I shouldn't
: be getting all these LQM (status report) packets. It's always an LQM
: packet that's the last thing received before the disconnect so these
: might be worth looking into.
: Meanwhile, I get one of the tech guys at the provider on the phone and
: ask him what PPP package they run. Guess.
: Morningstar, it is. Ooohhhh, now where's that email........ aaarrrrggghh!
: I can't find it!!!
: Luckily, when I told him that someone didn't think I should be getting all
: these LQM packets, he was able to figure out what option to set. He did,
: and now it works!
: SUMMARY: To get Solaris 2.4 PPP (or 2.3 w/ patch) to work correctly with
: Morningstar PPP, the Morningstar machine must have the "nolqm" option
: Hope this helps somebody.
