Here is my problem
I have a linux 2.0.21 box running with TCP/IP and IPX in the LAN.
ncpfs smbfs samba and other TCP/IP products work fine!
Now I want to give my users the possibility to connect with a
modem! With a W95 station a PPP connection and IPX/PPP on the
external interface. Configure pppd and go you can work as
if you would be on the lan (slower but ok).
My ppp options file looks like this:
And for IP it looks good I can ping everybody, but I cannot see
any W311/W95 machine with W95 net view of net use command on the subnet
where this machine with its IP address would normally reside!
On the other subnet I can see every share.
But on the same subnet I can see the linux boxes with the samba shares!
And I cannot do anything with IPX but I honestly don't know where to
get descend information.
I read the appropriate /usr/src/linux/Documentation files the
/usr/doc tree and searched and read some info files in /usr/info.
But I cannot seem to find the problems.
The proxyarp should handle my PPP machine as if it would be on the lan
and it looks certainly that way, but Windoze doesnot seem to like it!
On the IPX question I found not so much info, do I need mars nwe
or lwared to do this, can it be done?
