/etc/ppp settings for Earthlink
I am trying to setup an old box with a Zoom 2920 pci hardware modem.
It is going into an airplane hanger that only has a phone line.
My dmesg finds the modem and assigns it com3
I looked at the OpenBSD networking FAQ and am putting most of my effort in ppp rather than pppd.
I'm trying to make this easy for others to use so I installed current xfce4 with xfce4-modemlights
I know that dialup modems are nearly extinct but there is no other way to connect.
I tried the guide here but it used pppd and I get the sense it is dated
and pppd is not the preferred method now days.http://openbsd-wiki.org/index.php?title=Dialup_PPP
Also tried this Absolute OpenBSD link on setting up modems (needs flash plugin to view)
I recall that earthlink required PAP/CHAP and previously had to set the DNS name servers manually.
Anyone using earthlink dialup in openbsd can share their basic ppp setup?
Try surrounding the name and password with single quotes.
Also use "add! default HISADDR" to override a possible existing default route.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
