I have connected Windows XP based computer to a NULL modem based hardware using serial cable.

But once PPP session is started , most of LCP responses from reote end is discarded by windows.

After analysing logs in Windows side , I understood that root cause is ID mismatch in LCP messages.

The root cause for this ID mismatch is remote end sends LCP response little bit slow so that windows

LCP message request got timed out and sends new LCP request to remote end again. So how I can increase

this LCP message timed out period in windows side ?Is it available any script file to configure

LCP, IPCP messages in PPP of Windows XP ?

Here I copied the log that I got from windows side

[3100] 14:09:28:875: Config Ack rcvd. on port 5 silently discarded. Invalid Id
[3100] 14:09:32:812: Recv timeout event received for portid=22,Id=7,Protocol=c021,fAuth=0
[3100] 14:09:32:812: <PPP packet sent at 01/03/2004 08:39:32:812
[3100] 14:09:32:812: <Protocol = LCP, Type = Configure-Req, Length = 0x19, Id = 0x8, Port = 5
[3100] 14:09:32:812: <C0 21 01 08 00 17 02 06 00 00 00 00 05 06 2D 72 |.!............-r|
