We have a Kerlink gateway with a sim from a Belgian mobile provider (proximus) and want to set up GPRS as a backup connection.
However, when we place the sim in the gateway (with the config below) we see that the gateway is restarting every 30 - 40 seconds. (patch for known bug “empty GPRS user & passw” has been applied).
ppp0 is not visible in the ifconfig and can not be started manually.
We have sent the gateway with the Belgian SIM to our Dutch supplier and they have done the same test on a Dutch mobile network and everything works correct !?
- gateway + belgian sim on belgian mobile network = NOK
- gateway + belgian sim on dutch mobile network = OK
We have also tested other belgian service providers, but they have not been successful here either.
Where is the difference? Suggestions ?
Config / etc / sysconfig / network
GPRSAPN = internet.proximus.be
GPRSDNS = yes
GPRSUSER = kerlink
GPRSPASSWORD = password
BEARERS_PRIORITY = “eth0, ppp0”
