Andy and others,
A while ago I also tried setting up PPP on SOlaris 5.6 - so far without success but I plan
to try again.
In my case I was interested in making my Sun available for dial-in connection from PCs
running Windows 95 or 98. I found a number of tutorials etc (as described by Bill and
Philip) but they all tended towards setting up your system to access another system/isp,
rather than the other way around.
This looks like what Andy is trying to solve too.
I believe my problem may have been in determining how the PC was negotiating the PPP link.
Scripts like configppp.sh look great for setting up to connect out to some other
system/isp - does anyone know of something similar for the reverse or preferably for
configuring PPP for conncting in both directions?
If anyone can assist I would be grateful for an email pointing to a tutorial etc
