testing ppp w/ debian
I'm trying to get ppp working on friend's debian portable. wvdial is
what I have used in the past, but, any other ppp package
recommedations are welcome. What I'm need to do is put a serialport
(rs232) modem on another debian system and set it for the dialin
(inbound) part of the ppp connection connect. Once I get that to work,
I need to be able to require various things, such as pap, chap, etc,
on the inbound side so at to emulate what the ISP requires. That way
we can test the various settings on my friends' portable. Having cable
modem access at home, it's been a long time since I've messed around
with dialin ppp. One other question, instead of going to the trouble
to setup a radius server (would not even know which radius package is
good), can I just make up a shell account for the user and auth the
passwd on the same server that the serialport modem is connected to?
Any ideas on packages for the ppp dialin on single serial port?
