I apologise if this has been answered b4, but I haven't been in this
list for quite a while, and I did search the archives.
I'm trying to connect a Win95 laptop to my FreeBSD (2.1) machine and
basically have the FreeBSD host act as a gateway to the rest of the
network. I was wondering if I could simply use a null modem cable
between the two COM ports and trick win95 DUN into using that? AFAIK,
DUN will wait for a dial tone, which obviously isn't going to be there.
It is looking for a dial-tone, it looking for a "CONNECT xxx" in
response to an "ATDT xxx-xxxx" command (plus some other AT commands it
I think you can work around this by using the scripting addon (part of
the Plus pack, which also include SLIP support), and write a script which
doesn't send AT commands.
