macPPP -> linux -> ISP

Post by Russ Hugul » Wed, 01 Nov 1995 04:00:00



I have been trying to setup PPP so that I can login to my service provider
with the linux box then log into the linux box with my macintosh using
macPPP over a direct serial link.  I have gotten this far but the only machine
that you can get to from the macintosh is the linux box and only then if you
type in the IP number.  The Mac eventually fails saying that no DNS answered
the query.  The linux box has no problem telneting or pinging anywhere.
The linux box is using dip to login to the server who allocates an IP number.
The Macintosh is using a ppp account that I set up for it.  I have tried all
the likely sounding solutions that have been posted in the past few weeks but
none have worked.  I tried combinations of 'defaultroute' and the magic number
But have yet to get any improvement.
I am hoping it is something simple like a route command or two that can be
automated with a shell script.

I hope I explained this well enough, it makes me wonder why i'm going to the
trouble...

Pardon me if this seems like an obvious thing that perhaps you've tried
already, but have you set up MacTCP to recognize the Lin box's IP number?

It's not just that, though; in your MacTCP control panel, you also have
to select the EtherNet icon (and *not* the EtherTalk icon, which is the
default).

Again, I'm sorry if this seems obvious and if you've tried it already, but
that's basically all I had to do to get all the Macs on our LAN connected
to the Lin server (after having run netconfig on the Lin side, of
course)... It's easier, IMHO, to set up a Lin box for EtherNet than it is
to set up a Mac.

1. Trunpet Winsock -> ppp[0 1] ->linux -> ppp[1 0] -> isp

OK, I've read (and re-read) all of the pertinent HOW-TOs, README files,
Linux Network System Administrator Guide, etc. and can't seem to figure
this one out.

My wifes `puter is (still) running Windoze 3.1 and has Trumpet Winsock
on it. I'm running Linux 2.0.29 and have a `stable' (been working for a
year or so...) pppd running to connect to my isp. We have a serial
connection between `puters (115200) between serial ports. I want to
connect her machine with a ppp connection and route this through my
modem to the isp. Every time I log on from her machine (using a username
that is supposed to run pppd as a `shell', like the HOW-TO sez) pppd
runs and then dies.

Is this a proxy-ARP problem? Every thing I read talks about using pppd
as a server and routing it to an ethernet connection, nothing about
passing 1 pppd process to another.

Any Ideas?
