What kind of internet connection do you use? Cable, DSL, ISDN, analogue?

If you're using DSL and/or cable you could use the Roarin Penguin PPPoE[1] driver. While installing/configure it asks you if you want a dial-up or permament connection.

HTH.

me too!

I've just browsed about half of the posts here, but I could't find how to:
- set a dial on demand script on a RH8 machine which will be a gateway/router/firewall and domain controller in a W2K network
- set my internal Intel MD5628D-L-C modem to work -- same NO CARRIER issue as presented in Intel MD5628D-L-C Chipset - Red Hat 8
(anyway, this is partially solved with an external, serial, decent modem).

Thanks in advance (if I can find anything before, I'll post it here!)

I think demand has been a supported feature in pppd for a while. In any case I think that what ppp-watch is meant to do, look at man ppp-watch.
Also see the man page for pppd, a demand option is listed.




I use ssh to start and stop the ppp link on my fire wall from my desktop machine. if you want to go that route you can exchange keys and then just
"ssh firewallmachine somescripttostartnetworkstuff"

Thanks for the tip. I will start digging.

The problem is that the (future) users are totally newbies, so I have to setup the scripts to go whenever they click on the "Internet Explorer" icon.

pppd demand dial

I've got demand dialing working using pppd (Im on a dialup modem connection by the way) as in it demand dials when i make a request to a IP address only not a domain name. but it won't complete the connection it hangs up after the line:

Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyS0
Hangup(SIGHUP)

Anyone got any ideas? My ISP is BTInternet using CHAP. Ive setup my pap and chap secrets files but the problems still not cured. Anyone? And why will it only demand dial on IP addreses not domain names such as redhat.com?

Any help guys would be nice so close to getting this server working now then i can finally convice my boss to get rid of are crappy Micro$oft Small business server!
