Win95's PPP <-> Linux PPP server?

Win95's PPP <-> Linux PPP server?

Post by James McGi » Mon, 18 Dec 1995 04:00:00

I have a (working) linux PPP server, a (working) win95 box, and a
(working) Livingston Portmaster.

I can make windows 95 connect to the portmaster, and I can make another
linux box connect to the linux server, but I cannot make the win95 box
connect to the linux server.  Are there any special settings or
considerations for Win95's ppp to connect to Linux's PPP ?  Everything
works fine (including proxy-ARP) from the linux perspective, but I seem
to be stuck with win95's hidden stuff it does when it establishes a PPP
connection.  Here is my ppplogin, which runs as this user's shell when
he logs in:

exec /usr/sbin/pppd passive modem crtscts proxyarp :

(TCP/IP information for that address is correct on the windows side.
It all works great if I connect to the portmaster instead.)

1. <Local Net>--LAN--<SERVER>--PPP--<ISP>


I've got a routing problem & hope someone can point me in the right direction.

I have a TCP/IP ethernet LAN with IP addresses of 192.0.0.X. The machine with IP
address of has a PPP connection to an ISP.

The PPP interface has an IP address of (ppp0).

All operations work fine directly from the PPP machine, using a default route
to the ISP & resolv.conf. Pinging the ISP from another machine on the LAN
routes out OK through (visable from the modem lights), but nothing
is sent back. I would like all the LAN machines to be able to have Internet
access. Any pointers would be great.
