Chat doesn't work _right_ for me. I can make it dial the number, it'll
send my login id, send the password, then it's like it stop serial input or
something. If I kill off chat, and start up kermit, all I have to do is
hit return, and i'm logged in. (I can hit a space, then return, to
verify that it did send my_passwd, and a carriage return).
Here's my chat script:
ABORT "NO DIALTONE"
ABORT "NO CARRIER"
"ogin: " "\p[user name]"
"ssword:" "\q[your passwd]"
"unity%" "/local/bin/pppd && logout"
So what's wrong with it, and also, why will it not log _anything_ to
syslog like it's supposed to?
