Linux to Linux PPP
Posted on 1998-07-16
Anyone out there know how to establish a PPP link between two Redhat 5.0 boxes. I have a server co-located at my ISP's site and another server at a remote site. I want the server at the remote site to dial into the server at my ISP's location and establish a 24 X 7 PPP connection. I'm using modems at both ends.
I've gotten to the point where I can dial-in to the server at my ISP from the remote system using mincom without
any problems. PPPD is running on both servers but, I can't seem to authenticate a login and establish a PPP
connection. I need to know specifically what files I need to modify and what scripts are needed to establish the PPP link. The remote Redhat 5.0 system is attached to a LAN, and the users on the LAN need to have
internet access for email, web browsing etc.
