IP Accounting doesn't work for PPP dial-ins :-(( ??

Post by Ingo Ciechows » Mon, 09 Sep 1996 04:00:00

I've got a 2.0.0 kernel with IP accounting enabled and successfully
installed some rules with

# ipfwadm -A -i -S other.system.in.domain -D other.system.in.domain

If other.system.in.domain is within the same subnet as my linux box itself
everything's fine. However - I need that accounting for my PPP dial-ins
and there I run into the effect that

# ipfwadm -A -l

always gives me a 0 traffic indication :-(

I'm not sure, but the reason might be that my PPP dial-ins are not within
the same subnet as  the linux system and that their routing's beeing
enabled by DIP right after the connection's been established.

Does someone have an idea what I could do to get that traffic counted ??

1. PPP doesn't work under 2.0.26 anymore :-(

I finally got the gcc upgrade and got 2.0.26 to compile!!!!

Now when I boot, I get:

SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable

What does this mean?

Also... My old kernel allowed me to ppp connect to my ISP using the pppd and
chat commands.  Now it tells me:

Sorry - PPP is not available on this system

But I set CONFIG_PPP=y when I built my kernel.  I also set NETWORKING and
TCP/IP to 'y'.

Does anyone have any suggestions on either of these?

Thanks in advance for the help!
