Here is a message I sent to uwash.linux and didn't get adequate reponse:
It seems that a lot of people are asking this, but noone has the
answer.... If someone can help me with this, I would be happy to write a
little howto. I am amazed that I haven't seen the answer since this is
probably the most popular linux dist. right now. Anyways here is what I
Installed Redhat as normal.
Set up linux for my home network - NE2000 card - 192.168.1.100 I don't
know what to do for the settings:
Nameserver I used - 192.168.1.254 (default)
Gateway I used - 192.168.1.100 (planning to use this as IP_masq sys, is
Don't know what to put for domain name and all that. Do I just make up
one (such as marcus.com and host name linux.marcus.com?)
Added routed (I hope this doesn't affect anything)
Install is done.
Go into X and run linuxconf
Add ppp0 and use PAP leave all defaults....
Try and connect from linuxconf - doesn't do anything
Save all and exit linuxconf
Run usernet (as Redhat book says to do) Get green light for IO and eth0,
red light for ppp0, click on ppp0 dials, and turns green.
Try to telnet and run netscape. No reponses.
Leave x-win - download wvdial with minicom. Install. Setup. Run.
Doesn't work - default script doesn't work.
Try configuring ppp-on script. Doesn't use PPP. Dial into uw and notice
that script needs to look for Username: instead of ogin: and needs to send
PPP after >>. Try to confige script to do this. I don't understand
scripting language because it doesn't dial after I edit the script as I
think it needs to be.
All of the above is from memory about 24 hours ago. It is 5:00AM now. I
may be delerious.
Please, help me!
