Remote Connection Problems-Can't get past the connect machine
Posted on 2000-01-11
I've set up my RH Linux6.0 machine as a dialup server using mgetty and pppd. Both of these work like they should I believe, the only problem is I cannot get past the machine I originally connect to on our local LAN. We're using the standard 192.168.3.* addressing for our LAN and I'm using a Win98 machine to connect. The DNS-ing is not working either, although we do have a DNS server on the LAN, but it is not the dialup server machine that has it.
So I have 2 questions:
1. Do I have to run a DNS server on the connect machine, or can I just set up a file that tells the remote users which one it is?
2. What organization do I have to contact(or do I have to at all) to get an IP address.(I'd like to use the dialup server as a point of access to the internet for remote users.)
Thank you and sorry about the low points, that's all I have. I'll increase it as soon as it goes up a bit.
