Can't connect reliance ec325 on ubuntu7.1


This can be a real challenge.
If you cannot get on, then get the D-Link box as a quick fix.

You may , just may need to open what is called a UDP port for the router, which if you can get in then set the udp port to accept your vonage.
Vonage is pretty rock solid and most boxes have all udp ports open.

You issue is that you are using a PPP and that is a real source of trouble. You have to be able to tweak the incoming router box. Some ISP 's want you to use there phones and will block ports so you cannot do much.

Complain to your internet provider. Make them fix it or replace a box that will allow open communications with the Linksys / vonage box.

your password file (papsecrets) has been given access to users outside your login.
This means someone could potentially hack your connection by gaining access to your papsecrets file.

User permissions for papsecrets needs to be reset to you only, and no global/group access should be allowed. Note: it is a hidden file but is in folder /etc/ppp/papsecrets

Restore the original permissions with:
# chmod a-rw /etc/ppp/papsecrets
# chmod u+rw /etc/ppp/papsecrets


Basically your operating system is defending you from sharing your internet passwords with the world.
