Based on the very little info you posted, here is the same level of reply. You have your system configured incorrectly.
Now is that reply useful? About as useful as your question is. Nobody here has ESP so they can not remotely read your mind or the contents or your system's config files. When asking for help it's your responsibility to provide enough info for readers of your post to actually help you. Post full contents of the following config files to get meaningful help. Rc.conf, dmesg.boot, ppp.conf, ppp.log, firewall rules, output from ps ax command while user ppp is running. If you are trying to use kernel ppp, change to user ppp as it's a whole lot easier to debug. Is this an new clean install from cdrom? Have you used FBSD before? Besides just saying you have an "external USR modem" how about model number and speed(IE 33.6, 56K or what) Details man details. The more details you provide the more helpful the reply will be. -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Behalf Of -=Nihr0M=- Sent: Saturday, May 22, 2004 6:28 AM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: PPP takes the system over :( Hello, I have a 5.2.1-Release. The problem is, when I start PPP -auto <my_script> and my modem connects, when tcp transaction is going (e.g I download a file or open a web page...) I'm not able to run any other program (it seems like comp 'freezes'). That just sux... but when the action completes, all htese progs start ... duh... BTW, my system is Athlon 1200Mhz, 256Megs of RAM, 200 of 2500 mb free on HDD, external USR modem Looking forward to hearing from you, Slava _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
