Hi, is there any body on this list that has a good understanding as to
how PPP works?
I do somewhat. Mainly with user PPP.
I ask because of all the times I've setup PPP I've only ever got it
going properly this way...
I've always have to configure my en0 regardless that I don't use
it. I've find that relying on just the PPP interface and lo0 never
PPP doesn't use the ethernet interface. It uses the 'tun0' tunnel device for
When PPP makes the connection it will handle configuring the tun0 interface;
all you have to do is add a couple of routes.
Now, I've always had to configure en0 because I need to refer to
justine, justine.elastica.com when the interface is offline
. ie. sendmail, inn etc.
Routing should take care of this.
So, if you aren't using your NIC I'd be interested in hearing how
you've configured PPP.
Like normal, just adding appropriate routes. If you don't even configure the
device then even better.
also, I ask all of this because I'm having a bitch of a time getting
dp-4.0 and Solaris 2.5 working under Solaris x86.
I don't do slowaris.
