I am trying to set up dip.3.3.7l-uri as a server. Everything seems to be
working fine - I can use dip to connect and stay connected without any
problems, and there are no error messages in the debug, messages, or
syslog files. However, I am getting no response whenever I try using an
Internet-related service, i.e., ping, telnet, nslookup, ftp, etc.
It appears that one of two things is happening. Either I don't really
have a slip connection, or I the host computer is not routing my requests
properly. Is there any easy way to tell what the real problem is?
On the client end, I have set up the dip server as my Internet gateway,
and the routing table seems alright. The nameserver also matches the
nameserver for the host machine. On the host server, I am running kernel
1.2.7 compiled with IP forwarding. All the relevant Internet functions
work perfectly on this machine.
I would greatly appreciate any advice or help anyone can give me to
resolve this problem.
