Using pppd dialinginto a WINS
Posted on 1998-01-03
Dialing into sprint.ca, I don't get a username or password prompt. Using Windows95, I place my username & password in the dial-up box, I do not have to configure my "Dial-up" connection with any IP addresses OR use any scripting. Sprint says they are using Windows95/NT for ther server?!
Has anyone figured out how to make pppd work with this type of a dial in? Sprint somehow gets my username and password from the Win95 dialup box, without scripts!? Alas in Linux, it seems to connect, jump into ppp and the connection hangs up.
