I am preparing for the MCSE networking exam and I want to practice dial-in setup.
I live in an area that does not have a land line phone service but I do get cell phone services. I have 2 cell phones.
I just want to setup my notebook as a dial-in server for my old Atari Falcon030 using a null modem cable. Is there anything special I have to do?
Just installed on my Poweredge 1850 server with Ubuntu 11.10 server and I need an update for setting up a dialin PPP server!?
I know this topic is about 2-3 years old but I just installed this on a old desktop with 10.04.3lts installed using external 56k modem and having issues with the guide like:
when it ask to create /etc/ppp/options.ttyS0 I get this:
Failed to open /etc/ppp/options.ttyS0 : No such file or directory
the settings are on 777 for permissions.
Yeah it's been a long time. Let me see if I can figure it out:)
I hope you already figured it out. If not let me know - I'm sure we can get it to work.
Without too much looking in too it are you just having problem creating the file? What exact command did you use to create the file? and what are the 777 permissions for if the file doesn't exist? Creating the file could be done in many different ways - likeand type in whatever you need... It just worked for me. Default Ubuntu 11.04 i386 Desktop installation....Code:
sudo gedit /etc/ppp/options.ttyS0
If I understand you right - it sounds like the /etc/ppp doesn't exist in your installation for some reason. TryandCode:
sudo apt-get install ppp
I hope this helpsCode:
sudo apt-get install pppconfig
I'm trying to go through the howto again it looks like /etc/inittab doesn't exist anymore. It's been suggested somewhere if you will put one in there Ubuntu will honor it. Others (Nerdcentric and quiricada ) have suggested that /etc/event.d/ should be used instead. Looking at SerialConsoleHowto for newer versions of Ubuntu we have to useIt seems like this should be appropriate content for itCode:
I don't see other differences from the guideCode:
# ttyS0 - mgetty
# This service maintains a mgetty on ttyS0 from the point the system is
# started until it is shut down again.
start on stopped rc RUNLEVEL=
stop on runlevel [!2345]
exec /sbin/mgetty ttyS0
My modem is HSF modem and even doesn't work, so I can't configure the ttyS0 channel! I have "No pre-built modules for: Ubuntu-11.10 linux-3.0.0-14-server x86_64-SMP" error!! The compiler doesn't find smp_lock.h in the include for linux, so how can I find this header??
I would like to setup this linux server with internet share for winxp desktop to dial-in.
I have set up the ppp server for ubuntu v8.10 desktop version for winxp dialup.
I test it, but the winxp cannot get the ip from ppp server.
Any hints for it?
I have tried to hardcode the ip from winxp.
But it make the connection for a very short moment (1sec) and drop off.
The ip ??
Please help. Thank you very much.
