Re: AS/400 PPP Connection to ISP

fixed

Thanks for replying (and thanks to Art also).  We deleted the line
definition and then, via Operations Navigator, we deleted the the
Connection Profile and then recreated it and the line definiation by
typing everything in again.  Worked great the first time!!

I'm not sure what happened to that first profile/line definition but
everything works great now.  The 400 negotiates a dynamic PPP address
with no need for a connection script.

Thanks,
Gary
