PPP connection crashing Solaris 2.3 dial-in host

PPP connection crashing Solaris 2.3 dial-in host

Post by Andrew Patri » Sat, 28 May 1994 06:45:22



I am trying to install PPP on a SPARCstation 10 running Solaris 2.3 (a
fresh OS installation). I am attempting a simple dial-in server
configuration.  The asppp.cf file contains:

        ifconfig ipd0 plumb 142.92.50.1 up
        #
        path
                inactivity_timeout 120     # Approx. 2 minutes
                interface ipd0    
                peer_system_name pppuser
                peer_ip_address 142.92.50.2

Where the net 142.92.50.x is a dedicated net for PPP to this machine.

The passwd entry looks like this:

        pppuser:x:231:231:PPP Link for Sam:/:/usr/sbin/aspppls

The PPP user in this case is a PC running the PC/TCP software from FTP Inc.  

The problem is that the Solaris machine panics and crashes each time
the pppuser dials in and tries to make the PPP connection.  It looks
like the LCP layer connection is made, but then the Sun crashes when
the IPCP layer is attempted.

I have tried various configuration options on both ends and the Sun
machine panics each time.

Has anyone seen a Solaris machine do this kind of thing with PPP?  Any
patches I should know about?  Any suggestions on what to try next?

Thanks

Sounds just like what ours was doing before we applied patch #101425-03.
Per Sun, as of last week, rev. -03 is still the latest.

1. HELP: Solaris 2.3 <---> Solaris 2.3 PPP link problems

Hi all,

We are attempting to link up two Solaris 2.3 networks via PPP and we are
running into some problems.  The link initialy comes up and we are able to ping
both sides for about 30 seconds or so and then nothing.  Does anyone have a
clue what could be hapening? We are stumped here.

Thanx,

- Steve
