Well, I've had dialup PPP into my Internet provider, using dynamic IP
addr assignment, working for 6 months. My configuration was an ugly hack,
particularly the routing part, but it worked fairly reliably and since
there was no Sun documentation available to help...
Now, after upgrading my 5.5 Beta Update i86pc to 5.5 Generic i86pc, my
configuration is broken. It appears the mysterious (to me at least) way
Solaris handles PPP interface routing has changed somewhat since Beta
Update. (Yes, I verified that the pertinent config files I had setup were
put back in place after being moved out by the upgrade procedure.)
Has Sun produced an "official" documentation on setting up dialup PPP
with dynamic IP addressing? This is of course a method of net connection
used by ever-increasing number of home users and I would think Sun would
be interested in that market for Solaris x86. I've set up many other UNIX
systems (Linux, AIX, AUX) for this but I can't figure out Solaris.
