I am unable to connect to any ISP using netconf (configured via linuxconf).
The modem disconnects after about 1 minute (variable). However it works perfectly
via kppp.

Started with
$ netconf --connect uklinux

Here are debug and dump output from daemons/info log.

During the time it is up I can browse the web.
The behaviour and log is exactly the same as if I had typed ctl-C at the
console I ran netconf from.
So it looks as if it is my PC terminating the connection, not the far end.

I am running Mandrake 9.1.

Any ideas?
Thanks
John
