How to configure PPP on HP-UX 11.0?

Post by Ilya » Thu, 10 Jun 1999 04:00:00

I got a 712/80 running HP-UX 11.0. 14.4K Bocamodem, Hayes compatible.

What is the exact string I put in my /usr/local/bin/pppup script?
I do have pppd and the kernel comes with PPP support.

My Linux script doesn't work! "connect" option not found, and
'chat -v -f /etc/dial-ppp' is an unrecognized parameter.

exec pppd connect "chat -v -f /etc/dial-ppp" /dev/modem 115200 debug crtscts modem defaultroute

Of course, I have


'' ATDTxxxxxxx CONNECT '' ogin: <login>.ppp word: <password>

BTW, I am able to connect to my ISP via kermit interface.
Please modify email header to reply, thank you very much.


1. How to configure PPP on HP-UX 11.0?

I am in the process of acquiring a 712/60 workstation for personal use. The
machine will be used solely for Email, web browsing and compiling programs.

My question is, how do I get PPP running on it?  Does the kernel need to be
recompiled for it? Where exactly is the procedure described? I will not have
access to a LAN connection at home. However, HP-UX 11.0 appears to have kermit
installed by default so I could dial up to my ISP and download whatever files I
needed to run PPP. Any help regarding this would be greatly appreciated.

kermit and pppd appear to come with 11.0 by default:

# which pppd

# which kermit

Please post.
