First of all you are using an development version of Freebsd which

Second that web page you reference only says it has been tested on
openbsd and that it's an beta version with big warning message. You
are making an very big and unsupported foolish assumption that it
will work on FreeBSD at all, more less on an development version of
Freebsd.

I recommend that you try it on Freebsd 4.9 the stable production
version. It more closely resembles openbsd than the development 5.x

Thanks a lot for your suggestion . But I intent to run FreeBSD 5.2.1 only and not 4.9 because
I need ufs2 for my other work (eg. I am porting ufs2 to linux ) .
I did a bit of tweaking to compile this program (which was for openbsd) .
on freebsd and had to do a lot of configuration changes for running
eci-load1 and eci-load2 successfully .


versions do. I would say this  message 'Child failed (errdead)' is
the problem that caused the "Too many LCP NAKs sent - abandoning
negotiation" log message.  You should have posted the ppp.conf file.

I will post ppp.conf in next mail .(I am currently away from that machine) .
For me ,the problem appears to be in ppp program and not in eciadsl .



Try adding this to your ppp.conf disable pred1 deflate lqr # compression features deny pred1 deflate lqr # line quality reporting disable ipv6 # turn off ipv6 challenge

Will try this and let you know the results.


As an guide, I would plug an ms/windows box into your DSL modem and see what it says to verify you really need PPPoA.

I know this for sure because as I said in my first mail , I am using the same
program on Linux (on the same box with same modem ) to successfully connect
to the provider.



FreeBSD 'user ppp' also has pppoa and pppoe options. Most DSL modems work with pppoe. Read man ppp and the official handbook at http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/pppoa.html

Hi,

I have a DSL modem with Globespan chipset.
I am trying to use eciadsl usemode program
 ( http://eciadsl.flashtux.org/download.php?lang=en )
on FreeBSD 5.2.1 (AMD Athlon 2600 , A7N8X-VM  motherboard).

However , I am getting the following error and
ppp connect failed . See the copy/paste from the terminal below :

# ppp -background adsl
Working in background mode
Using interface: tun0
Child failed (errdead)

After  some more digging , I was able to enable logging . (See log
below)
From whatever I see in the log , I guess the culprit is the line
which
says :
"Too many LCP NAKs sent - abandoning negotiation" .  But I don't
know
how to address this problem .
Could anybody please help me on this .

NOTE  that I am able to connect to my provider using the 0.8 version
of
usermode eciadsl program on Linux , on the same machine .

Also , is there any other program which can be used on FreeBSD for
this
purpose ? FYI , I have to use *ppp over ATM ( PPPoA* == RFC2364 )
for this connection .


If you need any more info , please let me know. thanks Niraj
