ppp



The LSMers said let there be ppp.  And there was:

	ftp://walfield.org/pub/people/neal/ppp/ppp-latest.tar.gz

Whether it works or not is another question; I did all of my testing
without being able to dial in (i.e. I create a virtual matching on my box
using a second pfinet stack.  You can see how I did this in
ppp/examples/ppp/ppp.conf.hurd.virtual.link).  I was able to ping the
other stack.  Today, I got my second box up and the serial line working.
Unfortunately, it looks like fragmentation of packets is broken.  Oh
well.  Here it is, maybe you can help me debug it.

Thanks go out to Daniel for starting the port, Marcus for the pfinet
stuff and Roland for pfinet and the bug therein (I learned a lot about
the forwarding information base).  Oh yeah, you will need the patches
that I posted on bug-hurd.

For those interested, getting net access in France is a huge pain in the
butt.  The French have a crap load of circular dependencies.  C'est la
vie.  Maybe I will have a telephone line next week.  Maybe next month.

Happy hacking.
