I'm noticing that pppd seems to have trouble with binary file
transfers (certainly on my system, anyway... :). Text transfers are
fine, but binaries cause rcp(1) or ftp(1) to hang regularly, for
20-30 seconds at a time. I'm running 1.0, with the base and comp
stuff from ftp.eskimo.com built from the March 5th sources, on an
SE/30. Kernel is GENERIC #29 from the same place.
I'm assuming my modem configuration is fine (hardware flow
control, appropriate cable, etc.), as I have no such trouble under
MacOS using MacPPP. Here's /etc/ppp/options:
tty00 38400 defaultroute passive crtscts netmask 255.255.255.0 connect "chat -f /etc/ppp/chatscript"
Any suggestions? Thanks...
