dp-4.0 on Solaris 2.4

dp-4.0 on Solaris 2.4

Post by Andrew Bens » Thu, 21 Dec 1995 04:00:00


        I'm having some trouble with dp-4.0 on Solaris 2.4
THis is on a SPARC 5 and was compiled with gcc.  When it tries to call
the service provider, it first prints out a message like:

12/20 10:03:33  9347    failcall: dp0 (PSI): No modem -- check lock files

and then _USUALLY_ dials anyway.  The chat script runs okay, and then
things stop.  snoop shows me sending 'ping' packets to the address on
the other side of the link, but shows no packets being received.

        Additionally, /var/adm/dp/call.log shows :

PSI term/a 12/20/95 09:59:36 00:00:30 dpd   ip/icmp   I 8/157        O 12/505

        ... as if packets may have been exchanged.  Also, dp.log shows:

12/20 09:59:36  9268    makecall: PPP started to "PSI"
12/20 09:59:36  9268    makecall: "dp0" IF flags changed from 0x0000 to 0x00f1
12/20 10:00:06  9268    collect_child: PPP exited with status 0
12/20 10:00:06  9268    hangup: Process 9268 got signal 18 for "dp0"
12/20 10:00:06  9268    hangup: Outbound interface "dp0" up 30 seconds
12/20 10:00:06  9268    hangup: Inpackets = 8, Outpackets = 12, Average = 0.67 packets/sec
12/20 10:00:06  9268    hangup: Disconnected "dp0"

        Anyone have any ideas on this?

Thanks a bunch,


1. Any HOWTO on install and using dp 3.1.4 on Solaris 2.4?

  Can anyone point me to documents that will describe on how to use
dp 3.1.4 to dial up a xyplex box which allocate dynamic IP address to
my remote machine? Also, I don't know the ip address of the xyplex port
either, so I guess both are dynamic IP addresses. I was able to get
PPP to work on linux but not dp on Solaris 2.4.
  Thanks a bunch.

6. Konqueror and mail

7. Does dp-4.0 work OK with Solaris 2.5?

8. PPPD not getting SIGHUP using mgetty+sendfax

9. anybody running dp-4.0 on pseudo tty pairs
