I have played with the ppp-on script under linux, it works fine,Quote:Benno Senoner writes:

Can anyone of you help he in any way ?
I have a linux-desktop connected with PPP over a phone-line
to my provider.
1)Now I want to connect to the desktop via PLIP (parallel cable)
a laptop running linux.
The problem is that my provider gives me dinamically ONLY one
IP-NUMBER: is there a way to share ONE IP on TWO machines ?
What is the easiest way to setup my mini-network, so that the
laptop connected via plip know the dinamic-ip ( in case I start
ppp on the desktop) assigned by my provider ?
3) I have 2 users on my machine and each user have a different
POP3 account on 2 different pop-servers ?
Is there a way under linux to set up two different POP3 servers, so
that when PPP goes up, the desktop connect to the 2 POP3 servers
and retrieve the mail for each user ?
I want to set up system that works in a following manner:
- if ppp is down, the laptop comunicates to the desktop via PLIP
- if ppp goes up, first the desktop retrieves mail from the
two POP3 servers, and then comunicate the IP number assigned by
the provider to the laptop, so that both can share it, and
both have access to INTERNET !
(only one dinamic IP) --------- --------
