[Server-devel] wvdial woes

I copied my perfectly working wvdial config to the schoolserver (XS 
165). It doesn't work.

Looking in /var/log/messages, I see that CHAP authentication succeeds. I 
am assigned a local and remote IP address. I receive DNS servers. Then 
pppd terminates on signal 15.

The connection lasts for 0.1 minutes, disconnects, and reconnects 
endlessly. /etc/resolv.conf is never set up.

I turned off "Check DNS" but the behavior is the same.

This is the same USB CDMA modem which is working on my laptop to send 
this email.

Any suggestions?
