I still can't get my Sparc 2 to dial out and connect via PPP. I
talked to Sun Tech about the problem that I'm having. They have no clue
(Big surprise!) what wrong with my set up. So I turn to you guys a few
weeks ago. Thanks to all you I now have better idea off what makes
Solaris 2.6 tick. But the problem of connection is still there! I
Reinstalled several time to make sure that everything is set up exactly
to what all the emails say. But as soon as I type
# /etc/init.d/asppp start
All I get is another line. No activity from the modem and the asppp.log
says that the script was successful. Then when I type
# /etc/init.d/asppp stop
The system stops on my screen that is open. If I open a new window or
use the CDE control panel that I can start new things but I have no
control over the windows on the screen. At this point is I look at
asppp.log. It says that PPP connection could not connect!
What been tried so fare:
-Sun Doc on how to set up ASPPP
-Sun Doc on how to set up a modem
-Numerous Step-by Step instruction from a dozen people from this group.
-Change of PPP software from Solstice PPP_3.0.1 to ASPPP
-Change of modem from USR x2 to USR 14.4.k
-Changing the modem from ttya -ttyb (software and hardware)
-Playing with every PAP script known to man kind.
All the Docs explain exactly the same thing so I know that the files
are set up correctly. Also I know the modem works because I can dial out
and connect using tip. As well, a friend of mine installed RED HAT
Linux on a second drive for me. I can get a PPP connect running Linux
in seconds! I don't know enough about unix to deal with two different
version of it plus I can't find any software for the Sparc version of
So if anyone has any ideas how to get a SPARCstation2 with 64 mb ram
and Solaris 2.6 to dial out and connect PPP using a script or PAP
logon. I'd really be a big help!
