my understanding of having the 'TIMEOUT 10' phrase in the 'set login' statement
was that the timeout gets changed to 10 seconds when it expects the 'ogin:'
prompt...i took it out any to test and it didn't work anyway.
i changed the statement so it sends a carriage return instead of a line feed
but again i end up hitting my head against a brick wall. (and it hurt ;-)
set login "TIMEOUT 10 ogin:-\\r-ogin: MYUSERNAME assword: MYPASSWORD"
i getting the following in the ppp.log when i try to chat...
Wait for (10): ogin --> ogin:
Wait for (10): assword: --> assword:
can't get (10).
i take it that the 'got:' statement on the second to last line means that it
just got an empty line, i can't figure out why it isn't picking up the assword:
prompt - it seems to be picking up the :ogin prompt allright....
thanx again for any help...
