Requesting help in Linux

Post by John D Bog » Sat, 05 Dec 1998 04:00:00

If anyone is willing to help. I am very new to the Linux enviornment and
I am having trouble learning how to install new software. I am also
unfamiliar with how telnet works. I was able to configure a ppp so that I
am able to dial out; however I cannot seem to get telnet to interface with
my shell account on another server. Also what is the proper way to mount
my cdrom drive and either read or install files from it? I would also
like to know if there are any drivers for a zip drive compatible with
Linux;if so where do I get them from? Finally, I would like to make my
Linux machine a server for an NT machine. I do not know what type of IP
address I should assign my Linux Machine or how to change it. I have a X GUI.
Also, do I need DHCP? The network I want to setup is only between my
machine and an NT machine for now.
Can anyone help?


1. pppd dial ins and , "LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests"

Hi, Ive setup pppd to accept dialins on FreeBSD 4.3,
this is what i got in /var/log/messages when people try to connect:

Jul 15 21:42:19 e-l33t pppd[25891]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyd0
Jul 15 21:42:49 e-l33t pppd[25891]: LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests
Jul 15 21:42:49 e-l33t pppd[25891]: Connection terminated, connected for 1

now , I read somewhere that this could have something to do with gre
stealing the lcp packets,
 but i'm sure i didnt compile gre into my kernel.

( Also, I set the modem to ATS0=1 and saved it with AT&W0 , so it auto
answers, and this works fine )

# cat options
            lcp-max-configure 40 // recently added, not tested
# cat pap-secrets
# Secrets for authentication using PAP
# client        server  secret          acceptable local IP addresses
  dialin        *       "password"        *
# cat options.ttyd0 # ip's of local and remote hosts

# cat options.ttyd1 # ip's of local and remote hosts

And in /etc/ttys

# cat /etc/ttys | grep ppp
ttyd0   "/usr/sbin/pppd"                dialup  on  secure
ttyd1   "/usr/sbin/pppd"                dialup  on  secure

Thanks :)
