Linux <->Null Modem<->Win95 with PPP

Linux <->Null Modem<->Win95 with PPP

Post by Jay Barb » Tue, 20 Feb 1996 04:00:00



I have been tring to get my pppd in my Linux box setup so that I can
do some serial networking via a null modem cable...  I have tried a
couple of different methods of doing this...

I get the most response out of my machine using the same setup that
was illistrated in the network admin guide (setting up a ppp account
and a pppd script).

If anyone has done this, drop me a line... I could use some new ideas,
new approaches and some help with all these damn messages in the log
files <grin>..

Thanks

I got this working , the main problem was that I could not find a driver
on the win95 side for NULL-MODEM , this is a brand that aperently paid no
royalties to MicroSoft ;)

What I did was write a short 'chat' script on the Linux machine that
accepted the ATZ and dial string,etc, and just said 'OK', 'OK' , 'CONNECT' ,
then the PPP negotiation went without a hitch.

I posted the script a while back , it is no big programming feat , two lines.

Go for it!

I have a similar set up to a Windows 3.1 machine working well,
but used SLATTACH and SLIP rather than PPP as it appears to be
much simpler to configure if all one wants is a TCP-IP
connection.

Check out http://www.vt.edu:10021/K/kewells/wells.html for a NULL-modem driver.
