I finally managed how to set up ppp on server and client side of two
Linux boxes or ms-windows with trumpet (client) and Linux (ppp server).
The server has the address 126.96.36.199. After starting pppd I can see
the ppp0 interface with ifconfig:
ppp0 Link encap:Point-Point Protocol
inet addr:188.8.131.52 P-t-P:184.108.40.206 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:1210 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
TX packets:1183 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
220.127.116.11 is our morning star router who runs rip with gated.
Kernel support on the ppp server is enabled. But I can still not reach the
network form my ppp client. The routing table on the ppp-server looks like
Kernel routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window Use Iface
18.104.22.168 * 255.255.255.255 UH 1436 0 235 ppp0
localnet * 255.255.255.0 U 1436 0 4002 eth0
loopback * 255.0.0.0 U 1936 0 222 lo
default 22.214.171.124 * UG 1436 0 68 eth0
What am i missing ?
I tried to install a dummy module on the server, with the address of the
client (140) andI tried setting the arp entry with that number on the
Ethernet card of the server. Then the client can see the network and the
network can see the client. But this en
ds at the router. Why?
If anyone has set up Linux as a ppp-server or can give me advice how to set
the routing please contact me.
