Setting up a PPP WAN with Solaris 2.5
Posted on 1997-06-25
This is the scenario: Dialin server = Ultra 3000
Remote offices = Sparcstation5 (9ea) all systems running
The Remote systems will be connected to the main office through the use of dedicated routers, DSU/CSU'S, and Private Virtual Circuits provided by our telephone exchange utility. Each Sparcstation will be attached to it's own LAN.
Each remote system will have its own direct link to the
main office via this same type of configuration described
1.] To which physical device on the LAN would the router be
connected? Connect the routers together? How?
3.] What kind of connection (cable) is needed to connect the Sun to the router. Which port is used on the Sun.
4.] I know each physical network needs a unique network address, but does the new WAN created by linking the
Sun workstations need a seperate and unique network address? How do you subnet a class C address (Example)?
Thanks in advance for yout help!
Knowledge is power, but it is only useful if it is shared!
P.S. How do you add an IP address to a dedicated router
