PPP server w/ dynamic IP provided by DHCP server

PPP server w/ dynamic IP provided by DHCP server

Post by br.. » Thu, 02 May 1996 04:00:00



Hi folks,

        My linux ppp server currently supplies a fixed IP address to
dialin clients.  Instead of this, I'd like to obtain an IP address dynamically
from our local DHCP server each time a remote machine dials in.  How do
I go about this?  Is there a standalone linux program which will request
an unused IP address from a DHCP server?  If so, I could modify my pppd
script to request the IP address, and pass it along to the remote machine
when pppd starts up.  Any suggestions?

                                        Thanks in advance,
                                        Bryan

1. Linux ppp server, remote IP given by DHCP server?

Hi folks,

        I'm setting up a linux ppp server.  So far, I've had pppd supply
a fixed IP address to the remote machine (running Win95), and everything's
been hunky-dory.  Now I'd like to make use of our local DHCP server (an NT
server, if that makes any difference) to generate an IP address.  How do
I do this?

        So far I've tried telling the Win95 machine to use DHCP to get its
IP address, and taken out the n.n.n.n:n.n.n.n line from my .ppprc file.  When
I try to connect, the Win95 machine generates a message saying that it
failed to negotiate a network connection with the server.

        Here's my current .ppprc:

        -detach
        modem
        crtscts
        lock
        proxyarp

What else do I need?  By the way, I'm running pppd 2.2.0e and linux kernel
version 1.3.71, with IP forwarding and PPP support enabled in the kernel.
All suggestions appreciated.

                                        Thanks in advance,
                                        Bryan
