linux support

Does the unmetered number (080Cool support linux? I can connect using the 0845 number.
Also my connection drops after around 10 seconds, I get one web page then connection refused, etc.
cheers!

Hi Jamie,

Shouldn't be a problem. The default setup will vary from flavour to flavour so there may be a few teething problems.

Make sure you disable ECN (explicit congestion notification) with 0808 as this will cause problems.

Regards, Torsten.

Well, my 0808 connection was never "fixed" (despite assurances to the contrary from PlusNet) -- all I can do is connect to the 0845 number. The "Linux and FRIACO" thread from a couple of weeks ago has more info.

Where are you dialling from, Jamie? Also, pppd logs wouldbe very usefull -- pass the "debug" parameter to pppd, and make sure syslog is logging "daemon.debug" messages.
