Get connected, stay connected, pt. 2

Is your PPP connection not working properly? Is the BeOS cutting off your Standard-PPP after a few seconds? There may have several reasons for this. Try to solve those problems by:

  • Using „Generic AT Commands, AT“ as modem
  • Using „Manual“ as Server Type
  • Checking „Use static IP address“, while leaving the IP address empty

„Generic AT Commands, AT“ works around fundamental errors in the init string.
The „Manual“ login seems to solve the kickout problem. Unfortunately, this leaves the user to enter name and password manually. After a successful login, just press the „Start PPP“ button and the connection is established.
The BeOS may have some difficulties with assigning dynamic IP addresses, so you should try to check the „static ip“ box. You’ll get a dynamic IP all the same.
