I have been told that Win95 needs PAP authentication by default. So you
have to configure those laptop-accounts to utilize PAP. In Win95 Plus
pak, there's slip-scripting tools for Win95. That's another alternative.

1. Win95's PPP <-> Linux PPP server?

I have a (working) linux PPP server, a (working) win95 box, and a
(working) Livingston Portmaster.

I can make windows 95 connect to the portmaster, and I can make another
linux box connect to the linux server, but I cannot make the win95 box
connect to the linux server.  Are there any special settings or
considerations for Win95's ppp to connect to Linux's PPP ?  Everything
works fine (including proxy-ARP) from the linux perspective, but I seem
to be stuck with win95's hidden stuff it does when it establishes a PPP
connection.  Here is my ppplogin, which runs as this user's shell when
he logs in:

exec /usr/sbin/pppd passive modem crtscts proxyarp :

(TCP/IP information for that address is correct on the windows side.
It all works great if I connect to the portmaster instead.)
