RS6000 to RS6000 ppp or slip - won't dial with modem

Post by GEDEO » Wed, 19 Sep 2001 22:58:30



    Any help will be greatly appreciated!!

    I am trying to setup an RS6000 AIX 4.2 to dial out to an already setup (
and working ) RS6000 with slip.  When I try to run "slipcall" it doesn't even
dial out.  I have the ACU tty1 setup in /etc/uucp/Devices File.  Looking at the
slipcall script it appears to me that slattach should be dialing out with the
modem - all I get is some errors saying
Device Type Direct wanted
Requested Device Type Not Found
See example run below.
    Anyone have a clue!!!

   Thanks Dave.

Example run:
 mod17 DEV /usr/sbin>  slipcall.s

RS6000 to RS6000 ppp or slip - won't dial with modem

I finally figured it out - obviously misunderstood some documentation!!

I had to add
"Direct tty1 - 38400 hayes"   to the /etc/uucp/Devices File.  Also changed the
/etc/uucp/Dialers File for hayes from commented out entry to new entry below:
# hayes =,-,    "" \M\dATQ0&C1\r\c OK \pATDT\T\r\c CONNECT \m ""
hayes   =,-,    "" \M\dATQ0&C1\r\c OK \m ""
First one tried dialing with no phone number!!  After the change - the slip
chat script did the dialing and all is working wonderfully!!

Hope someone who needs to know this reads it.
Later Y'all!
Dave.

 
 
 

1. PPP and dial-out modem partially work on RS6000 AIX4.3

I'm having some trouble configuring PPP and a dial-out modem to work. I
followed the instructions given in Chapter 11 "Asynchronous Point-to-Point
Protocol" of the IBM Certification Study Guide AIX V4.3 System Support, and
I've partially succeeded in setting up a PPP client.

The modem dials up the ISP and PPP creates a successful attachment, but that
is all that happens. I can't establish any web connections with netscape for
instance. I tried upping the number of interface connections etc. for the
link configuration, but that didn't help. How is the PPP connection made
available to all applications and commands that need to use it on demand?

In the PPP log, there are bootpd errors: hardware address not found. I've no
idea what's causing this.

The RS6000 has been set up with a hostname and IP address 127.0.0.1 in
anticipation of being networked. Until then, a modem is my only connection
with the outside world. Could this be interfering with the PPP subsystem?

Cheers,
Peter
