Howdy, I am using AmiTCP and AmiPPP to connect to my internet provider. AmiPPP brings up a message box every five minutes or so saying "Echo failed!" and giving me the choices of "Restart," "Close," or "Ignore." I've only tried Ignore. When I do, the requester goes away and the system works fine until the message box comes back a few minutes later. Has anyone else seen this? What's the problem? Is there a fix? I am using AmiPPP version 2x. Also, is there a decent newsgroup reader? How about a telnet client? One last thing. I got VooDoo, but the install script didn't work. When I try to send an e-mail, I get a message saying that it can't find my mail daemon(demon). Would that have been set up with the install script? Is VooDoo simply a GUI sitting on top of another program? Is there an e-mail program that does not require a daemon? Why haven't I seen this problem in PC software? Tom.
