1) I have two linux machines that are connected together via
10-Base T ethernet. No problem with the connection at the
hardware level. I can telnet from the PC (running RH6.2)
to the laptop (running Suse6.4), but not the other way around!
When I'm at the laptop and type 'telnet alpha' (where alpha
is the name of the PC on the net), it tells me 'connected',
then host disconnects! When I'm at alpha I can telnet to
beta (the laptop) no problem. What could be going on here?
Is it firewall software which needs to be configured? I
tried to go into linuxconf after trying a bunch of other
things, but to no avail.
2) Now for my second question which is kind of unrelated. I
had my ppp connection working to the ISP just fine under GNOME
on the PC, but then decided to add KDE today and try that. Well,
after running kppp to configure the remote connection, I dial
but the ISP connection terminates the connection after the login!
The log file is:

Would any kind and patient person be able to help me with either of
these two questions? (note 220.127.116.11 is not put in by me as the
DNS, which is the same as I use on beta when connecting to the same
