Hi, I'm trying to install a modem and PPP on a Sparc 20 running Solaris 2.7,
and have not been successful. I have installed the ppp packages and can talk
to the modem using tip. Using tip, I can dial out to my ISP and get a
successful login there. However, if I now start asppp and try to ping a
remote machine nothing happens. I think I must have missed a step, but can't
work out what it is.
As an alternate approach, I followed the instructions on the Kempston Web
site to set up dial-out to an ISP. These include editing three fielas in
etc/uucp: Devices, Dialers, and Systems. In Dialers I have a line:
hayes =,-, "" P_ZERO "" \d AT&F1\r OK ATDT\T\r\c CONECT
and when I watch the tail of /var/adm/log/asppp.log, I can see that the
Dialers script is being called, but I see:
Something must be going wrong at this point, but I don't understand what.
Any help appreciated! Thanks, Martin
