OK, I've read (and re-read) all of the pertinent HOW-TOs, README files,
Linux Network System Administrator Guide, etc. and can't seem to figure
this one out.
My wifes `puter is (still) running Windoze 3.1 and has Trumpet Winsock
on it. I'm running Linux 2.0.29 and have a `stable' (been working for a
year or so...) pppd running to connect to my isp. We have a serial
connection between `puters (115200) between serial ports. I want to
connect her machine with a ppp connection and route this through my
modem to the isp. Every time I log on from her machine (using a username
that is supposed to run pppd as a `shell', like the HOW-TO sez) pppd
runs and then dies.
Is this a proxy-ARP problem? Every thing I read talks about using pppd
as a server and routing it to an ethernet connection, nothing about
passing 1 pppd process to another.
