RE: AS/400 PPP Connection to ISP



fixed

We are doing this but we paid for a static IP.  The remote IP however is 
dynamically assigned.

We are using PAP authentication.

Do you have your modem profile setup properly?  If you can, try to use the IBM 
7855 ECS modem set in
ASYNC mode and use that profile.  If it works, you know you have a modem setup 
problem.
