dp-3.1.2 & Solaris2.4(x86)

dp-3.1.2 & Solaris2.4(x86)

Post by Boris Prochaz » Wed, 30 Nov 1994 23:38:13

I have been playing with PPP-packages on Solaris-2.4x86. And sadly
enough not been very succesfull.

Bundled PPP on Sol2.4(x86) just disonnects with lowering DTR. (Rumor
say the Engineer has quited on SUN.)
DP-3.1.2 runns into problem with memmory allocation, "malloc()",
(Some rumours say memory handling is poor in 2.4).

If somebody suceeded in building dp-3.1.2 on this platform,(that
wondefull :-) somebody ) could I ask to uuencode the binaries&libs
and send them over.

1. dp-3.1.2 / Solaris 2.3 config

First off, I need to apologize for being such a clueless newbie when it
comes to PPP.

SITUATION: I have a SPARC laptop with Solaris 2.3 and DP-3.1.2.  I have
gotten it to compile and I am struggling with the configuration.

My laptop has it's own IP address and it is known on the NIS network at
work.  I would like to use my laptop, via PPP, to dial in and access
more than just text-based apps.

I have the modem config set up correctly, because 'tip' works well.  I
can dial in at an effective baud rate of 38400.

The modem pool at work (Telebit Trailblazer with 24 nodes) gives a menu
after login and passwd verification which asks if you want to do a SLIP,
PPP, telnet, rlogin, etc connection.  I am not worried about that part,
because I'll hash out the 'chat script' once I get the modem to dial.

My problem is that I don't understand how dp-3.1.2 works.  If I tip into
the modem pool and select PPP packets start to come across.  I don't see
how running another shell and executing 'ppp' will work.  I still have a
shell spitting packets.

My dp log file says the daemon is running OK.  I have NO idea how to
force the modem to "dial-on-demand" to start the ppp hookup.  The docs
on dp are somewhat sparse and my TCP/IP handbook is sparser.

When I am at work, I plug in and the net knows my machine's IP.  When
I'm remote I'm supposed to use one of the modem pool's IP addresses?

What do I do?  Route command?  ppp command?  Can someone provide some
examples of their various config file?  I could end up being any of 24 IP
addresses - I don't see a dynamic IP address allocation option for the
remote end...  CONFUSED.  ANY help is MOST appreciated!  Pointing me
toward a FAQ or another help group is appreciated!
