PPP Configuration for AT&T Worldnet users

PPP Configuration for AT&T Worldnet users

Post by Norman H. Tacket » Mon, 14 Jun 1999 04:00:00


I have put together a web page for people who would like to connect to
AT&T Worldnet Internet Service from Linux using PPP. The set up will be
similar for other ISP's. The scripts/source is free and it takes care of
almost everything for you.

1. User PPP with AT&T Worldnet?

I would like to run "user ppp" to connect to at&t worldnet.  Is user ppp
the same as iijp or whatever it is called.

Here is the relevant information from a file called "att.sr" as follows:

[Dial-In Configuration]

Password=123lkjd86               #password

Note:  The above values are made up, but username does have the form

Phone=+1 (703) 685-8700
SiteName=AT&T WorldNet


I notice there is no gateway and netmask.  I called at&t, and they say
that they don't use these.

The IP address is dynamically assigned and in the form 199.70.x.x.  And I
believe worldnet uses CHAP.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
