I am trying to set up the Solaris 2.5 PPP to be a dynamic point to
point dialin server. I have it working okay however there is one
thing that I would like to change. I would like to have the server
assign the IP address for the remote ends, i.e., not have the IP
address hardwired in the configuration of the remote end but for
the remote end to obtain the number from the server. I am not
necessarily asking if 2.5 PPP can assign IP numbers dynamically,
I just want to be able to specify what IP number a remote host gets
and possibly change it from time to time in a configuration file.
The peer_ip_address keyword seems like the logical place to specify
the remote end IP address however the man page states: this value
is ignored for point-to-point interfaces.
Anyone have any ideas?
