Subject: PPP routing failure
Hi everyone -
I'm experiencing some funky routing failures when I dialup netscape
via user-level PPP:
I can negotiate IPCP fine; get a point-to-point link via tun0:
myaddr: 22.214.171.124; hisaddr: 126.96.36.199
When the default route is setup to 188.8.131.52, all of my packets
blackholed after the first router hop. I am not using NAT.
The PPP link works perfectly fine in windows dialup networking. So I
what is wrong. When I look at the routing table in windows, it seems
DEST NM GW IF
default 0 myaddr ppp
hisaddr 0xffffffff myaddr ppp
localhost 0xff000000 localhost localhost
myaddr 0xffffffff localhost localhost
myaddr.255.255* 0xffffffff myaddr ppp
multicast multicast myaddr ppp
*this is the first 2 dotted quads of myaddr appended with 255.255
If I try to manually set these routes in 5.3-R, I still can't get
Setting ADD DEFAULT MYADDR doesn't work, because ppp will still
is 0.0.0.0. Either I need sleep or something is funky here...
