Tunnelling PPP via telnet or ssh

Tunnelling PPP via telnet or ssh

Post by Doug Siebe » Tue, 11 Nov 1997 04:00:00

I have a Linux box at home and want to tunnel PPP through ssh (telnet would
be good enough for now for testing purposes)  I can't figure out how to
start up PPP in this way.  On the remote side I'm running iij-ppp on an HP-UX
machine, it can listen on a network port and therefore I can telnet directly
to it.  But there isn't any obvious way to make this work with the PPP used
on Linux which cannot work without a tty.  Any suggestions?

If you let the system beat you long enough, eventually it'll get tired.
