I am attempting to use a RedHat 7.0 server as a dialin server for my NT
network. I have the most current version of Mgetty, PPPD, and Samba
installed from RPM's. I can connect and authenticate all the way into the
network and view the servers and workstations inside the Network
Neighborhood from the client. The trouble is that I am not able to open a
server to see its shares. The client locks up.
I am able to view shares on the Linux server from my NT PDC. I am also able
to send smbclient messages from the Linux server to the NT PDC. I am also
able to ping all of my servers and some Internet addresses from the client
once I am "attached" to the NT network. I believe that PPP is working fine,
but I could be wrong. That leaves Samba. Attached in my smb.conf.
I address this message to both the Samba_NTDom and the Linux_Server lists so
some of this message may apply to only one group or the other. My apologies
if I am doing wrong.
I have taken the following steps for PPPD:
/etc/ppp/Options is the following:
Since I am using ttyS1 for the modem I have also edited the
/etc/ppp/options.ttyS1 file to provide dynamic IP number allocation for my
dial up users.
I have run the command chmod u+s /usr/sbin/pppd.
In /etc/bashrc I have added the alias: alias ppp="exec
WINDOWS 95 CLIENT
I have set up a PPP DUN and have taken all the defaults, except that it uses
pure TCP/IP and not NetBEUI. I also have the DUN client stopping and
showing a terminal screen once connection is established so that I can log
into the Samba server using a Linux userid as additional security to the NT
