ppp setup using command line (cli)
I have a 450Mhz box I am tring to set up as a router, dhcp server, dns server, everything. Because it is a slower computer I do not want to install X. I am running Red Hat 9.0 (Shrike). After much time I did get my linmodem working, now I want to dial out to my ISP.
All the reference material I have says to setup your ppp connection using the X Windows Internet Configuration Wizard. Using "wvdial" I can dial out, here the handshake but it never completes the connection. I set up a ifcfg-ppp0 file and tried ifup-ppp0. Still no success. My /var/log/messages states that /etc/hotplug/net.agent Net unregistered assume ppp0 is up
I never receive an IP address from my ISP.
is there any other files I need to configure besides my wvdial.conf and ifcfg-ppp0?
