NT client/PPP

Post by Brian Richardso » Wed, 15 Oct 1997 04:00:00

Apologies in advance if this is an FAQ or a newbie-type question.
I am new to Linux.

I have an Intel Linux box running RH 4.2, and am trying to
configure the remote communications utility on a Windows NT
client so that I can dial in to the Linux box remotely for
browsing pages, ftp, telnet, etc.

I have (apparently) successfully configured PPP to some
degree on the Linux box, since I can successfully dial
in using the Terminal program on the NT client.

When I dial in using the remote comm. utility, I seem
to consistently get "loopback" related error messages.

Apparently I have some configuration related issues to

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

1. Windows NT 3.51 as PPP server and Linux PPP client

Hi there

I would like to know if anybody out there has already succeeded
in getting Linux to go with PPP to a Windows NT Workstation 3.51 machine
acting as a dialup server.

At the moment I works between 2 NT machines - I sit at home and and get my
client machine to dial the machine at work. After I am connected the
server is set up to use call-back and calls my machine at home.

Is it possible to get call-back to go on my Linux box - in other words
I must first dial the NT machine and then wait for a ring? I can use
static or dynamic IP addressing...

I did not see any mention of this in the newsgroups?

Any help will be appreciated.
