RE: Dial-in Config Problem
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
This is from the NET-2-HOWTO. You can find more in the ppp-HOWTO and I
believe the serial howto.
Configuring a PPP server is similar to establishing a SLIP server.
You can create a special `ppp' account, which uses an executable
script as its login shell. The /etc/passwd entry might look like:
ppp:EncPasswd:102:50:PPP client login:/tmp:/etc/ppp/ppplogin
and the /etc/ppp/ppplogin script might look like:
exec /usr/sbin/pppd passive :188.8.131.52
The address that you provide will be the address that the calling
machine will be assigned.
Naturally, if you want multiple users to have simultaneous access you
would have to create a number of startup scripts and individual
accounts for each to use, as you can only put one ip address in each
