pppd works but I have a routing problem
Posted on 1998-09-08
I'm using ppp to connect my laptop computer to my network at work which is connect to the internet.
I can connect the two together using ppp/chat however I can't see beyond the network computer. I can't even see other computers on the network (using ping), let along the internet.
I'm using the defaultroute option on my laptop and I'm using the proxyarp option on the network PC. If I ping another computer on the network from my laptop, the packets are being transmitted from the laptop and they are be received by the network computer; however the network computer is not retransmitting them out its eth0 port.
I determined this by monitoring the /proc/net/dev file on each computer.
I'm using Redhat 5.1
What am I missing?
