windows computer time out on linux using masquerade
Posted on 2000-03-30
I'm using RedHat 6.0
with pppd 2.3.7
This is a network of microsoft 95,98,NT and linux machines.
The linux computer is the gateway
for the internet.The system is set
on demand for the dialup. Everything
works fine except.
If the modem if offline and you try to
send an email or surf, a network error message will be prompt. If you wait for the modem to get the connection and just resend or refresh everything is fine.
Is it possible to increase the time out delay on the network? This way the modem will have time to connect and respond.
