We have a Sun MP 600 Server, which I was handed Admin duties for. At one time, our dialup ppp account was working--but now--after installing the solaris 2.5.1 patch updates--
it does not.
I am still able to dial up the server from home, but now the Login Screen has extra characters in it, such as extra
x's, 8's and o's,--but I am able to login on a terminal window with my user name and password--the extra characters just make reading files and directory's a little difficult.
But--when I try to use the ppp server--and type ppp for the username and password at the terminal window--then press the F7 or continue button--I now get a message that says
"You have been disconnected from the computer you dialed" ,etc.
Do you know on solaris 2.5.1--where the settings for
specifying parity, data bits and stop bits should be?
If possible, if anyone is using Solaris 2.5.1 successfully
as a PPP server, could you send me a copy of the /etc/ttydefs file? You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you prefer, I can send my /etc/ttydefs file to you,
and you can tell me what is wrong, but I would prefer to
receive a copy from someone who has this successfully running,
Thanks in advance for your time. Your help will be greatly
appreciated, as I have some irate users who want this ppp
