Re: mgetty and ppp -> cannot determine ethernet address for proxy ARP ?

Well, it worked. I have tried to find the reason for a week now, and 2 hours 
after I write to ask it, I find that I do havea  proxyarp command in my 
ppp/options file. Sorry for the wasted bandwidth.


 I am trying to connect two linux machines together with ppp. I have
