I am somewhat a new user of Linux, and I have set it up on my system. I
have a modem connected that works and I can dial up. What I need to
know is how do I put an IP address on the modem so I can use pppd to
make a ppp connection on dialup. Right now when I dial in with Win95
using the post-dial terminal, I enter my username, password, then pppd.
The system hangs for a second then Windows says it can't negotiate a
compatible set of protocols, which I think probably means that I don't
have an IP address on the modem.
Also how can I find out how to dial out with my system to my ISP and
make a ppp connnection. Using ppp-on I can make it dial and
authenticate, but I can't do anything from there. There doesn't seem to
be any kind of connection....
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks.
