1.  I've already RTFM!
2.  My simple goal.
3.  Excerpts from the necessary PPP files.


1.  My situation:

Greetings!

First:  I have already read the Handbook, "The Pedantic PPP Primer", the
various FAQs;  I have also asked this question on the list before, and
have tried each suggestion. (There were four or five responses, all saying
different things.)  Overall, I think I have tried every combination of
these things, but still cannot get a working connection to my provider.



2.  All I need to do is:

Dial my provider (modem, not TCP/IP),
Send a <CR> to start the conversation,
Wait for "name>" and send "jroberts"<CR>,
Wait for "word>" and send (my password)<CR>,
Wait for "eys:"  and send "3"<CR>,
(Normally, the juice should start flowing after that last <CR>.)



3.  My setup (which doesn't work):

Sorry to send all of this stuff, but every person who responded the last
time asked for this information!  These files are set to the description
given in the Handbook (*Setting Up User PPP*, or whatever).  I have no
network card, and no assigned IP address.  After connecting with  ppp  I
get something like
      
           CONNECT OKAY!

           (pause)
  
           LOGIN OKAY!

Then I hear the modem hangup, and  *show log*  returns the termination
messages.  

What am I doing wrong?
