I want to connect a Win XP box to Linux (RedHat 7.3) using SERIAL NULL MODEM CABLE.
I tried this link : http://www.linuxgazette.com/issue41/smyth.html
But it did not work, I used agetty instead of getty.
And from Win XP, I used "Communications cable between two computers (COM1)" and "PPP" of course.
When I tried, it said "The connection attempt failed because the modem (or other connecting device) on the remote computer is out of order"
I tested the cable by using HyperTerminal from Win XP (I added "S0:12345:respawn:/sbin/ag
etty -L 9600 ttyS0 vt100" in /etc/inittab), and it worked well, so I assume that the null modem cable is OK.
But now, I need a ppp connection to that Linux box.
Please if you have experienced with this before, please inform me.
I also tested like this :
It did not work either :(
