'Unknown server error' after the /sbin/dip

'Unknown server error' after the /sbin/dip

Post by George Ca » Mon, 13 Jan 1997 04:00:00

Hi, everybody,

I was debugging a slip.dip script. Also I use a shell script( called
net, which is attached in this news) in Root account.

My net shell script failed. After that I manually use the /sbin/dip -t
I got the " Unknown server error " and quit.

Appreciate any advice.

set -e
dip slip.dip
until ifconfig | fgrep  P-t-P> /dev/null
do echo Waiting for ifconfig to report connection...
   sleep 2
ifconfig | sed -n '/P-t-P/s/inet addr: *\([0-9.]*\).*/\1/p' > $IP
host $(cat $IP) | sed -n 's/Name: *//p' > $NAME
hostname --file $NAME
echo Host name set to $(hostname)
echo -e\\tlocalhost\\t$(cat /etc/hostname) > /etc/hosts
paste $IP $NAME >> /etc/hosts
rm -f $IP $NAME



1. Help: dip error 'unknown server error'


        I setup my slip with dip, and I got the error message as

        % dip xxx.dip
        unknown server error

        The same package works on my friend's system. I wonder it's a  
simple configuration error. Any help will be appreciated!
