I set up PPP earlier (dial in) to a Red Hat system. I did this:
In /etc/inittab: S0:2345:respawn:/sbin/mgetty ttyS0 -x7 -D /dev/ttyS0
kill -1 1
In /etc/mgetty+sendfax/login.config: /AutoPPP/ - * /usr/sbin/pppd auth -chap +pap login debug modem crtscts
fred * sanford *
dick * vandyke *
in options.ttyS0: 10.0.0.141:10.0.0.149
- in /etc/sysctl.conf : net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1
- in /etc/sysconfig/network: NETWORKING=YES
- and in /etc/ppp/options:
This worked. I believe I recorded everything I did. Then I tried this on a CentOS 4.5. It gets to "verifying user name and
password" but then never responds. Oh and yes I did try logging in with a regular hyperterm (non PPP) to be sure the login/pwd
combinations work, so that is not the problem. (Yes, they are something other then fred/sanford and dick/vandyke actually.
I just used those as an example).
Anyway I can't get in and I don't see anything in /var/log/messages (nor /tmp/pppd_debug.log).
Is there something I am missing? This is actually a disk replacement, so everything on the client side
of my dialup remains the same (number, login, password, etc).
