Ben -

Let's start at the beginning then.

What version of SuSE are you running? Which kernel are
you using? Is your DSL line up? How is it connected to
your linux box? Are you running any kind of firewall?

The client comes with pretty good instructions, and
I'm assuming you followed them.

- you've compiled the application
- you've set up the pap-secrets file
- you've insured your network interface is up
- you've configured your DNS entry
- you've started pppd

Is this where you are getting the timeout? If so,
check /var/log/messages - it should have some useful
information as to what is happening with pppd in
there.

Check your pap-secrets file - I found the quoting
convention confusing - it should look like this:

#User #Server #Password
#IP
userid@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx * password *


it should also reside in /etc/ppp.

If this is not the case, please send details as to
what you have done and when the errors appear and what
they are (verbatim).

We'll get this running...
