Error 2 With Kinternet

Hi Opensuse Forum,

I have an inboard Conextant Modem installed which is recognized in Yast Harware as running normally. I also have the modem configured in Yast for my ISP. However when I try to dial up using Kinternet I get lightning coming out of the plug on the icon but no dialing. The error log goes

Trying to connect to smpppd
connect to smpppd
Status is disconnected
Status is connecting
Status is disconnecting
Status is disconnected
pppd[0] died pppd options error (exit code 2)

Any suggestions as to what to do next?



Its been a while since I used dialup, so any help I can provide will be limited. This error can be caused by a number of things. I recommend you install kppp utility (for diagnostic purposes at least). It can be used to query the modem (and alter init strings if required).

Have a look at ‘man pppd’ from CLI as well.

Some potentially useful tips from this thread dealing with same error.

Hi Deano Ferrari

Can you please tell me what CLI stands for? Also
pppd (point to point protocol dialup?)



CLI -> command line interface (via terminal for example).

The command I gave you is to view pppd manpage:

man pppd

It was just to give you an idea about the error.
