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
