Wish I could help you, but I haven't gotten as far as you have with eql.
Just a thought, though: what is route tell you? Have you checked it to see
if you have any conflicting routings? I had a lot of trouble with that when
I first started using ppp.
Perhaps you'll be able to help me out. I'm trying to get two v.90 modems
talking to my ISP. Have done it with NT Workstation previously, so I know it
works at ISP's end. I prefer Linux's router capabilities to NT. I can get a
single modem to work fine, but I can't get eql_enslave to work on my Linux
box. I'm running RedHat with the 2.2.5-13 kernel. It has EQL installed as a
module. I can get the module to load, and I can configure it as the default
gateway with my box's IP address. I can also get both modems connected to
the ISP. Then I run into a brick wall. RedHat doesn't come with eql_enslave,
so I downloaded it from sunsite/metalab (eql-1.2.tar.gz by Simon Janes).
Everytime I try to run eql-enslave, I get a bash error: cannor execute
I've tried recompiling eql_enslave.c that comes with eql-1.2.tar.gz, but the
C compiler can't find eql.h in /usr/src/linux/drivers/net/. There's an eql.c
file there instead. I tried changing the reference from eql.h to eql.c in
eql.enslave.c but then the copiler spews error messages. Very frustrating! I
get the feeling that version 1.2 of eql_enslave is not compatible with these
newer kernels, but not sure of that either. What version of eql_enslave are
you using, and where did you get it? Did you
run into any of the difficulties I have?
Good luck with your problem, and thanks for any info you can provide about
