Please help set up PPP server (Urgent)

Hello:

        I have my machine connected to my University's network backbone
using an Ethernet card, and I want to give a friend of mine a PPP
connection. Here is the setup:

-       My friend is using a Mac in her room, and has MacTCP/MacPPP
        installed.

-       The University has special phone system, and modems cannot be
        used on them (ROLM). Instead, she uses the phone to connect to
        a central term-server, and telnets to my machine.

-       Once connected, she logs in as the PPP user, and quits the terminal
        program without* up. Then she starts MacPPP and it connects
        successfully.

-       I can see her from my machine as 'hunter.cif.rochester.edu' and
        can 'ping' the machine. She can also use NCSA telnet to connect to
        my machine using PPP.

        The problem is that she cannot connect to any other machines. And I
get no responce when I ping her machine from another machine. 'route' shows :

Kernel routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
localhost       *               255.255.255.255 UH    0      0        0 lo

Here is the '/etc/ppp/ppplogin' file:

#!/bin/sh

And 'ifconfig' shows:

          TX packets 11644 errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0

        I guess I have to somehow make may machine act as the gateway for her
machine, but so far I have not been successful. I have the IP
Forwarding/Gatewaying option enabled in the kernel (1.1.76)

        Is there any way to fix the problem? I have been working whole day
today to find an answer, and I really need to get it done by tomorrow. ANy
suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

        Thank you very much in advance. Please send your replies to

Hmmm, no - the other machines won't be assigned IP numbers from the
campus network (129.109.x.x) because I don't have any say over those
numbers (and because only ether-connected machines are permitted them).
I've been using addresses I believe are reserved for local networks
(i.e., forming a local network of PPP machines connected to my gateway
which is on the ethernet network). I just don't seem to have figured out
how to make this work.

I had this problem until I 'linked' the IP address of the PPP remote
to the ethernet address of the network interface of the dial in
PPP machine host. eg.
unless other machines on the network know the physical address of an
IP, stuff won't get routed to it. what this involved for me (on a
Solaris 2.4 machine) was to

1) issue the command 'arp -a' on the PPP dial-in host
   This will tell you what the physical ethernet address of the
   network-host interface is (in my case it's called le0).
   The reply you will get looks something like below (all names and
   addresses have been changed to protect the innocent!!):

Net to Media Table
Device   IP Address               Mask      Flags   Phys Addr
------ -------------------- --------------- ----- ---------------
le0    chester.anywhere.edu   255.255.255.255   SP    10:00:23:21:c7:ad
le0    BASE-ADDRESS.MCAST.NET 240.0.0.0       SM    01:00:8e:00:00:00

2) let's say that the ethernet address of the interface was
   10:00:23:21:c7:ad of the Dialin PPP host 'chester' and the name
   of the remote machine is 'buggles' (most stupid name I could think
   of!) then you now issue the following command

   arp -s buggles 10:00:23:21:c7:ad pub

3) bingo! you have told the network where it can send packets to when
   it's looking for the IP address of 'buggles' (the 'pub' bit at the
   end of the command publishes the address). This assumes that you have
   set up 'chester' as a router OK. Before doing this, I was able to
   connect through to the host machine, but not beyond....as soon as I
   issued the 'arp' command I got through everywhere.

This may not solve your problems, but it mught help.

Best wishes

Greg

        Since the first time I have posted the article, I have tried the
option you have mentioned, and it has indeed worked. But as things are now,
everytime the PPP client logs in, I have to manually set the arp entry. If
the client lofs out, and logs in again, the arp entry goes away :(

        Any suggestions? Thank you very much in advance

Try out Internet-Connect V2.1 It supports PPP/SLIP and Ethernet
connection concurrently. Gateway/IP forwarding/routing is also supported.
A copy of this package may be downloaded from:
