I am trying to dial into a Win95 box at work. The box is setup for
Win95/WinNT PPP but is not setup to accept TCPIP. It is strictly for
access the Microsoft network (which I assume I can do with samba once I
The connection appears to be using PAP (I don't get text upon
connection). It doesn't appear to care what username you use but
requires the correct password (which I have entered as the secret in the
setup dialog). It's also setup to use "software compression". I can
make this connection when booted into WinNT 4 so I know the modems are
OK and things work on the server end.
I've tried using the deflate and bsdcomp options (15,15) but no luck.
Connection drops about 5 sec after dialing in. I've also tried the noip
option and I'm currently including the ipx option. When dialing in from
WinNT, the server end accepts IPX protocol.
My feeling is that I'm missing a major PPP option that's probably
commonly needed for dialing into Win95 but which I haven't thought to
try. Any suggestions.
