So that I can get a free internet connection and to bring work home
:-( I have made a machine out of junk components and installed
FreeBSD. Wise choice I hear you all say!
But I have a few minor problems to come to terms with in regards to
user mode ppp.
[ij]ppp seems to be lacking in documentation and FAQ's. I was hoping
that someone could point me at a FAQ or else look at my problem and
Work run a WAN with a topology similar to this...
[Corporate HQ] [Branch Office]
WAN 1 WAN 2
----Various Machines-----------------FreeBSD (ED1)
I have the gateway option turned on (in startnet? I can't quite
remember now! but it is on as it shows up during the boot messages)
By "corporate law" if I want to access the WAN I must remain as
198.178.189.x and must not create any fake addresses. I have servers
(HP9000 and Novell) at .2, .3, .4, .5 My user machines are set up to
starting at .40 and go up to .98 (DHCP) My FreeBSD box can ping
anywhere on the WAN's (if I kill the routed process, but that is
another matter, as .253 advertises but .254 doesn't :)
Now the configuration files...
I think I have the sysconfig right, but the netmasks have me a little
network_interfaces="ed1 tun0 lo0"
ifconfig_tun0="inet 18.104.22.168 netmask 0xffffff00"
ifconfig_ed1="inet 22.214.171.124 netmask 0xffffff00"
Is giving mentioning tun0 and giving it an address correct?
I have created the ppplogin script and it starts if I login as ppp
I have set up the ppp.conf file with
set device /dev/cuaa0
set speed 115200
set ifaddr 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52
I am really guessing here with the 'incoming' bit and the 'set ifaddr'
line! (I only need to dial in)
My ppp.linkup has in it...
add 0 0 HISADDR
Once again I am lost. Any hints?
I have also created an options file...
I don't know why I have created an options files, but I remember
someone once mentioning this!
Well thats about it. I really hope that I have made an obvious and
simple mistake that someone can point out.
I just can't seem to make this click despite many days of trying
I am running Windows '95 on my home machine with terminal after
dialing. I dial, login as ppp, see the banner and start
communications. I am kicked out with "unable to negotiate a
Thanks in advance,
