Solaris 2.3 PPP and Dynamic Addressing --> Not...

Post by Mike Rank » Sat, 04 Mar 1995 01:18:15

I have been trying unsuccessfully to configure asppp to support dynamic
ppp addressing. This seems almost impossible.

I have an file that defines the interface to use the following
                ifconfig ipdptp0 plumb down

                interface ipdptp*
                peer_name   <ppp provider>

aspppd successfully loads, however when I bring up the line, I get a
message in the log file says "can't find path for" and just sits there
without connecting. What am I doing wrong... Flame away... Any help
would be appreciated.

Also tried setting both ifconfig and interface to ipdptp0, then I get
a connect but the daemon does not clean the routing table after the line
is brought down, it gets done manually.

Finally, I have downloaded Dave Brillhart's ppp cookbook, however this
treatise is for static ppp.

Please help please please please...

Thanks in advance.


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.
