Trunpet Winsock -> ppp[0 1] ->linux -> ppp[1 0] -> isp

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.

Any Ideas?

How does it die?  You might want to add the debug option to pppd for
more details, and take a look at /var/adm/messages for info.

Chances are, its that you need to make pppd setuid.

Greetings,

I had a similar problem using ppp thru the com ports,
with a null cable.  It turns out that 'routed -g -s'
MUST be running (for me, anyway) in the rc.inet1
or my ppp to trumpet dies. It's almost like a 1 minute time-out.
It didn't matter whether I logged to bash, then ppd'd,
or did 'exec pppd'.

Is this your problem ???  Anyway,
I would like to know WHY routed must run, since I
thought static routes would work.

1. MAC/PPP <---> FreeBSD PPP --->modem---> ISP

Hi,
  I'm sure this has been asked and answered a thousand times, but I
cannot locate the answer by searching through the archives. I have a
PC box (Cyrix P166+) running FreeBSD 2.2.2, and am using user-level
ppp over a modem to connect to an ISP (dynamic IP). I just got a MAC
(powerPC) and want to connect the MAC to the FreeBSD box, and use the
FreeBSD box as a router to the internet. I don't want to give up user
level PPP, since I have it working perfectly with -auto mode. I use
192.168.64.1 as my FreeBSD box. Also, I have a serial cable which
connects my MAC ModemPort (GeoPort?) to a serial port on the PC
(sio0). I want the MAC and PC to be able to use PPP over the modem
simultaneously, too.  I've seen mention of "proxyarp" but I don't have
any details.  Can someone send me detailed help of how to do this? I'm
sure many out there are probably running similar local nets.
 Thanks,
david
