You don't need to specify the IP addresses on both PPP sessions.
Specifying "172.16.0.1:" on one side and "172.16.0.2:" on the other is
the simplest configuration. You can also do "172.16.0.1:172.16.0.2"
on one side and *no* addresses on the other.
Quote:> use /dev/cua0 not ttyS0 which has a mini getty on it so ppp cannot start
I don't think that's right for Linux, but I'm sure a Linux expert will
follow up with more. I think "cua" is obsolescent on Linux and ttySx
is the right way to go.
In any event, getty should never be running on a cua port on a Unix
system. cua is generally for dial-out, not dial-in. (Unless, well,
Linux is very weird here. It's chown is bizarre, so I guess it's not
beyond the pale ...)
