Linux PPP-Server for Windows Clients

Linux PPP-Server for Windows Clients

Post by Ingo Bruec » Wed, 02 Dec 1998 04:00:00

I'd like to set up a Linux server as a ppp server for a Windows client so
that this client can become a remote part of the network. (Actually something
most Internet provider do.)

These are the pppd options:

  -detach crtscts lock modem proxyarp

The client is only configured for TCP/IP and should get its IP address and
the DNS address from the ppp server. I can login, but unfortunately the
client does not accept the connection. After pressing F7 in the terminal
window (after a successful login), there is a Windows error message which
says that the remote network connection doesn't work.

This is the server log:

  pppd 2.3.5 started by ppp, uid 1004
  Using interface ppp0
  Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyS1
  sent [LCP ConfReq id=0x1 <asyncmap 0x0>]
  last message repeated 2 times
  Hangup (SIGHUP)
  Modem hangup
  Connection terminated.

Which pppd option did I miss?



1. Windows NT 3.51 as PPP server and Linux PPP client

Hi there

I would like to know if anybody out there has already succeeded
in getting Linux to go with PPP to a Windows NT Workstation 3.51 machine
acting as a dialup server.

At the moment I works between 2 NT machines - I sit at home and and get my
client machine to dial the machine at work. After I am connected the
server is set up to use call-back and calls my machine at home.

Is it possible to get call-back to go on my Linux box - in other words
I must first dial the NT machine and then wait for a ring? I can use
static or dynamic IP addressing...

I did not see any mention of this in the newsgroups?

Any help will be appreciated.
