I just installed 2.0.29. I used the default PPP scripts (ppp-on and
ppp-on-dialer or whatever) , and just changed the obvious information.
However, I am not able to do anything with the connection.
I connect and log into the server OK, I get an IP address, and the
"route -n" command shows the gateway, but I am unable to get out at
all. I am not sure if it is related to DNS or not, once or twice I
_think_ I was able to ping with an IP number. I am positive my
resolv.conf is set up right.
Another thing that confuses me is that I cannot telnet to myself with
my assigned IP. So I am supposing that I am not getting to the gateway
at all. Telnetting to the loopback does work.
I have run "netconfig" about a hundred times, and tried many different
settings. I use 0.0.0.0 for the IP (I am dynamic) and I have tried
0.0.0.0 and various gateway addresses on my IP for the gateway
setting, but nothing seems to work.
I also tried dialing in with minicom, and starting pppd myself, but I
coudln't even negotiate an IP.
This is the 6th or 7th install w/tcp/ip I have done, so I am not
_quite_ a beginner, but this is the first time I have had trouble for
I have been having mail server problems with NT, so I installed linux
to hopefully simplify it. So I need this working soon!
I appreciate any help...
