Has anyone gotten wvdial to work with diald? I setup wvdial as shown at
It works great. I setup IP Masquerading by David Ranch's "Setting Up IP
Masquerade" by using his suggestions.
1) Check for IP Masq, "ls /proc/net", if ip_masquerade exists, your set
2) Check for ipchains, "ls -la /sbin/ipchains, if exists, your set
3) Create/modify /etc/rc.d/rc.firewall
/sbin/depmod -a
/sbin/modprobe ip_masq_ftp
echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
/sbin/ipchains -M -S 7200 10 160
/sbin/ipchains -P forward DENY
/sbin/ipchains -A forward -s -j MASQ
4) Make rc.firewall executable by root, "chmod
700 /etc/rc.d/rc.firewall"
5) Set IP Masquerade on boot, add line "/etc/rc.d/rc.firewall" to end
of /etc/rc.d/rc.local
Once rebooting and connecting to ISP using wvdial, all computers on net
in the range see the net and work. is the
I also edited the cache line in my "/etc/named.boot" file to
read "cache   .db.cache  ;cache only" to set my linux-gw machine as
cache DNS server

NOW. How can I get diald (dial on demand) to work with wvdial? I tried
the PPP script stuff and couldn't even get close......
