I am running NT Workstation at home, connected to cable modem. I want to be able to dial up my NT box and connect to the internet. I set up RAS on the NT box (correctly, I believe -to accept plain -text authentification)
I then tried to set up PPP on my Linux system. Red Hat uses Linuxconf to do this. EVerything seemed to set up correctly, my PAP_secrets file had my login and password in it, but it wont start PPP.
THe Linux book I have says that the server will begin PPP or you must initiate it with a command like "PPP". When I dial into my RAS server, Minicom sez it connects at 38,000 , but no PPP is initiated by the server.IT just conncets and sits there. Is there a way for the client to tell NT to start PPP? Or is there another way to do this? When I issue a PPP command from my Linux box, it never connects. (I can telll with the ifconfig utitlity) .
