ppp setup on 1.2.X / printer setup

ppp setup on 1.2.X / printer setup

Post by Clev » Tue, 13 May 1997 04:00:00



Hi everyone:

I am running Slackware Linux (kernel 1.2.3) at home with XFree86 3.2
and I have 2 problems:

(1)  I can't figure out how to setup ppp properly.  I tried various
      combinations... the modem dials... connects but the connection
      fails even though I used (ogin: myloginname  ssword: mypsswd).
        a.  what are the necessary binaries (chat, pppd, ...)?
        b.  what is the functional ppp-on script that I would write?
        c.  what is the functional ppp-off script that I would write?
        d.  what else is required (resolv.conf, etc.)?
        e.  BTW, I downloaded Mosaic 2.7b5 yesterday

(2)  How do you setup an HP Deskjet 682 printer to print
      properly under linux (text and X-windows)?
      Right now, it just prints one straight line for everything I print.

Thanks in advance.

Cleve

First, you really should upgrade you kernel.
Second, have you tried running netconfig as root?  It asks you questions about
your setup and your gateway and your DNS.  Also, you might try checking the ppp
howto at sunsite.  It's a little long, but everything you need to know is
there.

1. help with ppp setup on mac68k NetBSD 1.2

Hey. I've just installed NetBSD mac68k 1.2 release on my trusty LC III
(68030 25Mhz). I would *really* appreciate any help to get my ppp
connection going so I can access my dialup ISP via modem. Any commands
that I could use or FAQ locations would be great. Please help me! Thanks
in advance.
