NetBSD/Mac1.1 & Solaris2.5 PPP link

NetBSD/Mac1.1 & Solaris2.5 PPP link

Post by Michael Bril » Wed, 17 Apr 1996 04:00:00

OK, I'm about ready to give up.  I've got an old Mac SE/30 running
NetBSD/Mac1.1 and I've been trying to get a ppp link to my Sparc10
going using the Solaris2.5 ppp package (through port A).  I've tried
different cables, goofing with parity/handshaking and other things and
it still doesn't seem to work.  A look at the logs shows the mac timing
out waiting for replies from the Sun (none show up).  The Sun's logs
show both incoming (the same one over & over) & outgoing config
requests.  It's as if the mac isn't seeing any input from the Sun
(although tip works just dandy).  Argh!  Does anyone have any clues!
Oooh, I feel like I must be overlooking something real basic.



1. ppp && PPPoE && ADSL && net && buffer(s)

i have a freebsd box (4.8-RELEASE) and a italian ADSL (256/128 if i remember good) line.
sometimes my freebsd box (that i use as firewall in my little lan) became stalled.
no data arrive and with ping IP i get error about some buffers full.
in ppp.log i see a lot of:
Jun 24 22:45:39 firewall ppp[66]: tun0: Phase: Clearing choked output queue

i search with google on newsgroups but i don't find nothing that work :)

i put some info on the configuration, because i read a lot of question about this parameters :)

kernel config:
maxusers        64
options         NMBCLUSTERS=32768       #expand nic buffer

in ppp.conf:
add default HISADDR

netstat -m:
1/400/131072 mbufs in use (current/peak/max):
        1 mbufs allocated to data
0/182/32768 mbuf clusters in use (current/peak/max)
464 Kbytes allocated to network (0% of mb_map in use)
0 requests for memory denied
0 requests for memory delayed
0 calls to protocol drain routines

netstat -t:

i hope that someone can help me :)
