Okay, here's the situation. My company is behind a firewall (a really
thick one) and the only way I can get through at home is by dialing in.
But I want to be able to run multiple sessions and browse the internal web
pages. So i thought I'd try slirp.
Easier said than done.
I use linux at home and usually dial into a VAX with minicom. But I can
telnet or rlogin to a linux box on my company's side. So this is what i
try to do.
Use minicom to dial into the VAX (VMS)
VAX$ RLOGIN /EIGHTBIT linuxbox
I have slirp configured for ppp in the .slirprc file. Then, on my local
box I try.
localbox$ pppd /dev/modem defaultroute 10.0.2.2:10.0.0.15
However, this doesn't seem to work. I just get garbage in my minicom
window and then pppd gives up.
What am I doing wrong?
