pppd setup, W95PC ppp login difficult and routing problems
Posted on 1997-06-20
I have set up a pppd daemon and I am able to login through
dial up networking from a W95 PC. I have created a pppuser
that starts a login shell which initates pppd. This means
that I have to login in as a pppuser in a terminal window
then continue an login as normal user through dial up networking. Rather cumbersome and not like I am used to using f.e. NT server. Are there ways around this ?
Secondly there seem to be routing problems. I am able to access the internet through the LINUX proxy but routing directly from the ppp host (f.e. from MS-DOS ping) is
blocked. Any suggestion here ?
