Question


Two rh6.1, one connected to internet through modem. Both are able to ping each other. When I added a ppp0 gateway and interface, the internet connection stopped with the error message "can't authenticate the remote computer". I ran the command $route add default ppp0 and the response was "SIOCADDRT: no such device".

Can somebody help.

Hi,

how did you
Quote:
add[ed] ppp0 gateway and interface
??

Usually the pppd set's the default route automatically.

Did you use pppconfig to setup the link to your ISP ?
Is your uplink working at all ?
If yes, why do you try to change the default route ?

Which kernel are you running ?
Which services do you want to work ?
http+ftp -> install squid.
"everything" -> compile NAT in you kernel and use ipchains to set it up.

More questions than answers, but your info was simply not enough.
