ppp IPCP negotiation

ppp IPCP negotiation

ppp IPCP negotiation


I am using Fedora Core 5.
I have an external application that starts the ppp negotiation with the ppp daemon running on FC5.

The LCP phase goes thru. When the IPCP negotiation begins the external application sends the Config Req.
Then, the ppp daemon sends the following packet with code 0x5E, I can't figure out what 0x5E means.
The external application again sends the Config Req.
The ppp daemon sends again 0x5E with a bigger payload and the payload seems to increase with every Config request.

Can anybody please, help?
