LINUX AS A PPP SERVER
Posted on 1997-04-23
Hi, I have RH 4.1 running with kernel 2.0.27. I can use PPP to dial out and connect to my ISP so I know PPP is loaded and working. I have compiled it into my kernel also. I've also got my LINUX BOX networked with my WIN95 BOX using 3Com 100Mbs NICs. I can connect to my APACHE Web Server on my linux box through the network. That was easy.
Now what I'm trying to do is set my LINUX box up as a PPP server so I can dial in and get assigned a DYNAMIC IP address. I've read & followed all the HOWTOS and README's including README.linux in my PPP dir. I've setup mgetty and I can dial in and login BY HAND, but I still can't get PPP working and I can't dial in automatically from WIN95 DUN. It sounds like it should be easy, but I can't get it working.
Rather than explain all of what I've done now, can you tell me STEP by STEP what I should do to get my linux box set up as a PPP SERVER ?
