how to use PPP?

Post by Her64667 » Thu, 16 Jul 1998 04:00:00

I'm sort of a novice to Linux. I read the PPP-Howto, and found it
non-instructive. I have RedHat 5.0. I saw the control panel, and configured a
new thing called ppp0, with all the correct information. Now, how do I actually
get it to dial?

--Max, who has been using Linux for 3 months and just now has looked into PPP.

Sorry, never mind. I was reading the wrong HOWTO. Don't bother replying. Thanks


1. VPN using ppp+ssh question (ppp-2.3.5 does not support pty)

I have WinXX boxes at home behind my OpenBSD gateway to DSL.

I am trying to set up a "VPN" type connection from my work computer
(RH Linux) and from my laptop when I am on the road to my home

I was trying to use "VPN PPP−SSH Mini−HOWTO" by Scott
Bronson but on the OpenBSD side ppp (is version ppp−2.3.5 need
ppp−2.3.11) does not support "pty" option and pppd does not
support "notty" option.

Is there a way to get a newer version of ppp/pppd on OpenBSD 3.3?

Is there a better way to provide a sucure VPN using ssh?

Any help would be appreciated!!
