PPP installation on solaris 2.6

PPP installation on solaris 2.6

Post by Nissim Etro » Thu, 14 May 1998 04:00:00

I have a pc with solaris 2.6 and would like to connect to a Shiva modem
server. The instructions in the answerbook looks quite complicated. In
Linux it was very simple.
Can someone give me simple instructions how to install and connect to a
Shiva lanrover modem server (using callback) ?

1. can't read Solaris 2.6 x86 hard disk on Solaris 2.6 Ultra-1 ?!?

I was going to use this hard drive to move large files from my
Ultra to my Pentium PC for CD-R backup, but upon "boot -r" on
the Ultra I saw an error about "invalid geometry" on sd3, the
drive I had formatted on my PC to be ufs.  And now of course
I can't even "prtvtoc" this disk ("Unable to read Disk geometry"),
so mounting it is seemingly out of the question.

What's the problem?  Was I naive to assume the a ufs on a Solaris
system would be the same regardless of CPU type?  I really don't
want to use Ethernet to transmit potentially gigabytes of data
on a regular basis :-(...

Please reply via email (and post here, of course), as I don't
get a chance to keep up with the newsgroup as regularly as I
would wish.  Thanks.
