How to Diagnose Problems With the PPP Configuration

Some PPP problems can be traced to problems in the PPP configuration files. The following procedure shows you how to isolate and fix general configuration problems.

  1. Become an administrator on the local machine.

    For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .

  2. Call the remote peer. Then enable debugging features.
    % pppd debug call peer-name
  3. Check the resulting log for the configuration problems. For more information, refer to Common PPP Configuration Problems.
