Need help wiht diald and ethertap
I am working on cleaning up my system (Woody rev0). One annoying
feature of the current setup is a long delay when I start a telnet
session connecting from one machine to another on my internal LAN.
I am using diald to bring up a ppp connection to the outside
world. When diald is stopped, telnet brings up its login prompt almost
immediately. But when diald is running, telnet waits while a ppp
connection is established (about 30 sec), and then asks for user name
and password. I'm sure this behavior is new with Woody, but can't
prove it. I would like to try reverting to having diald use SLIP
rather than ethertap. How do I expunge ethertap? and get a fresh
install of diald to test this theory?
Of course, if you have already discovered this situation and know how
to fix it, that is really what I would prefer to know.
