HELP: PPP <-> Leased Line <-> Netblazer

Post by mvale.. » Fri, 25 Aug 1995 04:00:00


  We're having problems connecting a Linux machine to the Internet.

  We have a Linux machine ( 1.2.11 ) with PPP 2.1.2a connected to
 a Motorola Codex 3266. This in turn is connected to a 4 wire leased
 line which has on the other end a similar modem connected to a
 Netblazer router.

  We're unable to get PPP to connect. LCP requests are sent continuously,
 all with the same ID, but we get no response from the other side ( though
 we can see the packets coming in on the modem RX light ).

  We'd like to hear from people with same/similar experiences.

  This is particularly mindboggling taking into account that we DID
 get PPP to work ( same machine, same kernel, same PPP version, same
 modem and leased line ) but we had another Linux machine on the other

  Any hints welcome.

  Thanks in advance.

  C U!

1. LILO help <><><><><><>

I just installed RH6 on a box that only had a 50MB DOS partition to
begin with.
During the RH install, I used Disk Druid to set up additional
partitions as follows:
/       ~1 GB
swap    ~40 MB
/usr    ~500 MB
/boot   ~10 MB

When prompted, I told it to install LILO into the "/boot" partition.

Upon restarting the system after the install, it booted into DOS again
from my origional active DOS partition.

I tried booting from the emergency rescue disk that I was prompted to
create during the install, but it gives me an error "0x10" and stops.

I can boot using the RH "boot.img" boot disk, hitting F4, and then
inserting the "rescue.img" disk made from dosutils on the RH CD, but I
have no idea what to do from there.

I want to make the thing boot with LILO and ask whether to start DOS or
boot Linux (as default). I realize now that I probably shoud've just
told it to install LILO into the MBR.

Please tell me there is an easy/painless way to get LILO to do this
without re-installing totally.

Many thanks!
