I have Linux Red Hat and use Xtra and Paradise as ISP'S with Netscape communicator 4.76.
When i configure my dialer for xtra NO PROBLEM.However i then try to configure for paradise and then 'Debug" that configuration No Problem I connect.Now if I try to use my dialer xtra is OK but the paradise connection goes right through to where it is waiting for the password prompt and then cuts out.This problem is persistant and it appears that to get paradise to work the once I have to delete both configurations and start again but it will only work the once on paradise.

I've given a couple of links relating to kppp which might help. See FAQ 80 ;=)
