Solaris 2.3 asppp to Centrum ppp, please help

Post by Ernesto Neb » Fri, 17 Feb 1995 16:39:43


I'm trying to use asppp provided with Solaris 2.3 to connect a SPARC
IPX with a modem to a SPARC 1 on a TCP/IP network, connecting through
a Centrum router/bridge running ppp.  I'm using a Practical
Peripherals PM144MT II modem.  I've followed the Answerbook
instructions, but the login script fails, saying I have entered an
invalid user name (I have verified that the user name and password to
the Centrum are correct).  If you have any experience with this and
would like to help me, I would appreciate it greatly.

I have summarized the relevant information below.  For this test, I
tried executing "ping nebelsparc" on machine inch.  ("inch" is the IPX
running asppp with the modem, "nebelsparc" is the SPARC 1 on the
network, and "Centrum_terminal_server" is the Centrum box running ppp
that gives access to the network.  The Centrum is used successfully
for connections from PC's.)  I've tried several variations in
the /etc/uucp/Systems file, with no luck.  I've also installed patches
101331-03 and 101425-03.

Thank you very much for any help you can give me.

1. HELP: Solaris 2.3 <---> Solaris 2.3 PPP link problems

Hi all,

We are attempting to link up two Solaris 2.3 networks via PPP and we are
running into some problems.  The link initialy comes up and we are able to ping
both sides for about 30 seconds or so and then nothing.  Does anyone have a
clue what could be hapening? We are stumped here.
