PPP-Connection to a Linux-Server

PPP-Connection to a Linux-Server

Post by Anton Seiss » Fri, 02 Jul 1999 04:00:00



Hi!

I have to connect a Win95-Client to a Linux-Server over TCP-IP (PPP).
The connection
works, and I also can ping the Server (192.100.1.90) from the client
(192.100.1.190).

The only problem I have now: I can't ping the rest of the LAN behind the
Linux-Server
(for example the Client 192.100.1.63). IP-Forwarding is set to *yes*,
but it still doesn't
work.

Has anyone an idea what to do?

Thanks for your reply,

Toni

Did you enable proxy ARP for your Win95-Client?

 
 
 

1. LINUX<(nullmodem)>Mac PPP connection; LINUX as PPP-server

Hi!

We are trying to run PPP thru a NULL-MODEM connection between
  -PC running LINUX (running kernel ver. 2.0.0, PPP ver. 2.2.0)
    and a
  -Macintosh running FreePPP ver. 2.5 and apple TCP/IP 1.1

Of course, we want LINUX to be the PPP-server and the Mac to be
the client.

This is how far we get:

LINUX:
   as root, we run:

   /usr/sbin/pppd -detach modem crtscts lock :192.1.2.23 /dev/ttyS1
57600

MAC:
   In the terminal window FreePPP recognises the ppp-startup string
   sent by linux. The local IP is also set.
   Anyway, all seems to go well. FreePPP says:
      -establishing communicatiom
      -succesful
      -established communication
      -(short time passes)
      -link dead
      -connection was established but it is not a reliable connection
and
       was terminated.

meanwhile at LINUX:
/var/adm/messages reads:
Sep 29 17:18:34 zorn pppd[147]: pppd 2.2.0 started by root, uid 0
Sep 29 17:18:58 zorn pppd[147]: Serial connection established.
Sep 29 17:18:59 zorn pppd[147]: Using interface ppp0
Sep 29 17:18:59 zorn pppd[147]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyS1
Sep 29 17:19:01 zorn pppd[147]: local  IP address 194.109.45.55
Sep 29 17:19:01 zorn pppd[147]: remote IP address 194.109.6.110

We have the feeling we are quite close to succes... :-}
Can anybody help us out?

Thanks in advance!
