We are trying to run PPP thru a NULL-MODEM connection between
-PC running LINUX (running kernel ver. 2.0.0, PPP ver. 2.2.0)
-Macintosh running FreePPP ver. 2.5 and apple TCP/IP 1.1
Of course, we want LINUX to be the PPP-server and the Mac to be
This is how far we get:
as root, we run:
/usr/sbin/pppd -detach modem crtscts lock :18.104.22.168 /dev/ttyS1
In the terminal window FreePPP recognises the ppp-startup string
sent by linux. The local IP is also set.
Anyway, all seems to go well. FreePPP says:
-(short time passes)
-connection was established but it is not a reliable connection
meanwhile at LINUX:
Sep 29 17:18:34 zorn pppd: pppd 2.2.0 started by root, uid 0
Sep 29 17:18:58 zorn pppd: Serial connection established.
Sep 29 17:18:59 zorn pppd: Using interface ppp0
Sep 29 17:18:59 zorn pppd: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyS1
Sep 29 17:19:01 zorn pppd: local IP address 22.214.171.124
Sep 29 17:19:01 zorn pppd: remote IP address 126.96.36.199
We have the feeling we are quite close to succes... :-}
Can anybody help us out?
Thanks in advance!
