Incoming PPP from Win95?

Incoming PPP from Win95?

Post by gtaver » Mon, 05 Feb 1996 04:00:00



Hi there!

I'm having trouble getting the Dialup Networking in Win95 to talk to my Linux
1.2.13 box.  I'm running the pppd from Slackware 3.0.  The messages I get in
my /var/adm/syslog file are:

Feb  3 21:56:16 zeus pppd[7933]: input: Unknown protocol (802b) received!
Feb  3 21:56:17 zeus pppd[7933]: input: Unknown protocol (80fd) received!
Feb  3 21:56:17 zeus pppd[7933]: input: Unknown protocol (803f) received!

The PPP processes are started by the command:

pppd -detach passive modem crtscts lock

This only happens with Win95 users, not Win 3.1 users using Trumpet
winsock.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

We use basically the same setup for a mixture of Win 3, Mac and Win 95
users without these problems. I seem to recall something along these
lines when Win 95 was configured to expect to be talking to a Microsoft
implementation of tcp/ip.

We're having this problem too. If you're not too worried about PPP per
se, there is, buried in the MS95 setup, SLIP with dialup script. It's bit
tricky to find, presumably to `assist' the decision making process towards
the reflex habit of clicking something which appears on the backdrop at
startup (Can you say `bundled services?').

Start -> Files or folders  [ Search CD (I:?) for slip ] should get you some
things.

And if you know what to do with inf files, ADMIN\APPTOOLS\DSCRIPT\RNAPLUS.INF
should prove useful.

http://www.windows95.com/connect/slip.html  (excellent walkthrough)

Notice how it's MS95 which has to change, how TCP/MS isn't standard, but
how they're calling the genuine, established standard `Unix SLIP' etc.

Myself, I prefer tar xzf.. :)
