Need help with Helius / direcpc / satellite

Post by Bob Rak » Tue, 06 Apr 1999 04:00:00


  I am trying to get the new version of Network Edition for DPC from
Helius running on my Linux (RedHat 5.2, kernel 2.0.36) system.

  My DPC setup works fine when I reboot into Win98.

I think I am having routing problems, but am not sure.  I have a good
signal, registration keys and license data.  The status panel shows
everything normal.  I have tried setting it up with PPP as my outbound,
I even installed diald and tried that as the outbound.  No luck.

I would appreciate hearing from anyone actually using the Linux version
of this software.



1. Direcpc satellite IP network driver

Hughes has finally got their act together on release #2 of DirecPC
(  Pricing has dropped dramatically, without
bandwidth charges.  Now you can get 200 hours of surfing at 400k for
$100/month.  This appears to be the only reasonable solution for my area, so
I'm going to sign up for it.  The only drawback is that the satellite feeds
into a single PCI card that goes in one computer.  I'd like to provide an IP
feed for all the computers on my network.

Hughes has endorsed a third-party company ( which has
written a dhcp-type server program for Direcpc.  It runs on NT, and allows
several networked computers to share the Internet feed from a satellite
dish.  It runs $599 per month, a huge increase just for a software driver.
This seems like a perfect application for a Linux box.  I'm checking to see
if it already exists.  Have you heard of someone doing this with Linux?
