I merely
modified /setup/ below) to "Not" update
/etc/ppp/options(also below) file after initial configuration and save
and created /etc/ppp/options.ttyS#(8^P) contents of which I can give. as
well as created "go" (starts pppd deamon)which is also below
modifications to inittab await allow both incoming and outgoing
at same time..but finished tonight I'm sure.....any questions??
It's after 2am here and I'm tired:) probably forgetting some detail or
thttpd is 45K :)
asyncmap 0
-------------/etc/ppp/options.ttyS# (0) in my case--first number local
second assigned to incoming agetty---------

(mods start here in your setup/fun/ file (I just put comment # in
to modify))

# Create /etc/ppp/options base
#cat > /etc/ppp/options <<END
#lock $CONNECT
# authentication type
case "$METHOD" in
#echo "user ${LOGIN}" >> /etc/ppp/options
cat <<END > /etc/ppp/pap-secrets
#echo "user ${LOGIN}" >> /etc/ppp/options
#cat > /etc/ppp/chap-secrets <<END
cat <<END >> /etc/ppp/chat-ppp0
# DNS settings
if [ "${NAMESERVER}" ] ; then
echo "search" > /etc/resolv.conf
echo "nameserver ${NAMESERVER}" >>/etc/resolv.conf
