Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Also, created the /etc/ppp/options.ttyS0 file with following entries:
and also created user entries in the /etc/ppp/pap-secrets file with corresponding map to Unix users.
Also, I have enabled routing from the dial-in server by modifying the /etc/sysctl.conf file and set the flag of ipv4_forward=1.
However, when I tried to connect a Windows 2000 professional workstation there was a successful connection which I have seen in the /var/log/messages file that there was succesfull login. I also ping the dial-in server IP address of 192.168.2.230 and there was a reply. However, when I tried to ping the e-mail server IP address (192.168.2.252), there's a request timed-out response. It seems that my dial-up client has established connection with the dial-in server only but not in the network.
Also, I have checked the IP configuration of the Windows 2000 professional client and it has a network subnet of 255.255.255.255. Does this caused the network routing or access problem? Is there anything I could do to my other configuration files for me access the other network servers via dial-up service?
