Re: OT: pppd wanted between two compu's
you may find the following options of some use (unfortunately i
can't verify now, this is all from my poor memory). here goes:
i seem to remember that when i configured leased lines, i used
to have the server assign ip addresses and have the clients
accept whatever the server sent them. i would try removing the
ip addresses from the client's commandline and add noipdefault
and local there, and i would also add passive and local on the
server. of course, you get to decide which computer is the
server and which is the client.
take all this with a grain of salt, since it's been a while
since i've last done anything like it.
