trying to configure ppp on webcam server


I am trying to build a webcam server with a dial-up connection. The aim is to allow the website on the ISP to dial-up and pull the latest webcam picture of the Kart sport track.

I have the webcam running using Linuxcam. I have configured mgetty to answer the phone(modem). I am trying to use ppp to allow a website to log-on and retrieve the picture.

For testing purposes, I have a friend with a windows PC who is attempting to dial-up and log on. My modem answers, mgetty does its job, but it seems that his machine logs-off. He gets an error message his end reporting a conflict with IP addresses, or no IP address allocated. I have tried changing the IP address shown below but it doesn't help.

The pppd configurations files are as follows:


asyncmap 0



The log shows the following:

Can anyone offer advice on how to configure things to allow a windows PC to dial in. Once I get that working, I can make some progress again.
