Connecting to NT server using Ezppp ?
Posted on 1997-05-24
Can anyone help me with getting connected to my WindowsNT server at my work place using Ezppp.
I have gone thru the Ezppp Howto and was able to get connected to my ISP but I don't know what am I doing wrong in this case.
I am using the following pppd arguments: -detach defaultroute lock user my_login (I am not sure about remotename, is it a must ?, I do know the domain of the NT server, though).
And my dial-in script is: Expect ogin: Send my_login Expect word: Send my_passwd
The /etc/ppp/options is empty and so is/etc/ppp/pap-secrets. I have tried putting "my_login server_name my_passwd" entry in /etc/pap-secrets but no good.
Using the same scheme(with no entry in/etc/ppp/pap-secrets), I have been able to get connected to my ISP. Following is the /var/log/messages output of the pppd session:
May 24 09:33:34 darkstar pppd: pppd 2.2.0 started by nishi, uid 501
May 24 09:33:34 darkstar pppd: Using interface ppp0
May 24 09:33:34 darkstar pppd: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/modem
May 24 09:33:38 darkstar pppd: Modem hangup
May 24 09:33:38 darkstar pppd: Connection terminated.
May 24 09:33:38 darkstar pppd: Exit.
Looks like, it got connected for a split of a second then "pppd daemon died unexpectedly".
I'm using slakware 3.0, kernel 2.0.30 on a Cyrix 166.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
