/etc/asppp.cf – Asynchronous PPP configuration file
/etc/uucp/Systems – UUCP file that describes the characteristics of the remote peer
/etc/uucp/Devices – UUCP file that describes the modem on the local machine
/etc/uucp/Dialers – UUCP file that contains the login sequence to be used by the modem that is described in the /etc/uucp/Devices file
For more information about asppp, see the Solaris 8 System Administration Collection, Volume 3, available from http://docs.sun.com.
The procedure that is shown in How to Convert From asppp to Solaris PPP 4.0 uses the following /etc/asppp.cf file.
# ifconfig ipdptp0 plumb mojave gobi up path inactivity_timeout 120 # Approx. 2 minutes interface ipdptp0 peer_system_name Pgobi # The name we log in with (also in # /etc/uucp/Systems
The file contains the following parameters.
Runs the ifconfig command to configure a link from PPP interface ipdptp0 on the local machine mojave to the remote peer gobi
Terminates the line after two minutes of inactivity
Configures the interface ipdptp0 on the dial-out machine for asynchronous PPP
Gives the name of the remote peer, Pgobi
The procedure that is shown in How to Convert From asppp to Solaris PPP 4.0 uses the following /etc/uucp/Systems file.
#ident "@(#)Systems 1.5 92/07/14 SMI" /* from SVR4 bnu:Systems 2.4 */ # # . # . Pgobi Any ACU 38400 15551212 in:--in: mojave word: sand
The file contains the following parameters:
Uses Pgobi as the host name of the remote peer.
Tells the modem on the dial-out machine mojave to establish a link with a modem on Pgobi at any time of the day. Any ACU means “look for ACU in the /etc/uucp/Devices file.”
Sets 38400 as the maximum speed of the link.
Gives the telephone number of Pgobi.
Defines the login script that is required by Pgobi to authenticate dial-out machine mojave.
The procedure that is shown in How to Convert From asppp to Solaris PPP 4.0 uses the following /etc/uucp/Devices file.
#ident "@(#)Devices 1.6 92/07/14 SMI" /* from SVR4 bnu:Devices 2.7 */ . . # TCP,et - - Any TCP - . . # ACU cua/b - Any hayes # 0-7 are on a Magma 8 port card Direct cua/0 - Any direct Direct cua/1 - Any direct Direct cua/2 - Any direct Direct cua/3 - Any direct Direct cua/4 - Any direct Direct cua/5 - Any direct Direct cua/6 - Any direct Direct cua/7 - Any direct # a is the console port (aka "tip" line) Direct cua/a - Any direct # b is the aux port on the motherboard Direct cua/b - Any direct # c and d are high speed sync/async ports Direct cua/c - Any direct Direct cua/d - Any direct
The file supports any Hayes modem that is connected to serial port cua/b.
The procedure that is shown in How to Convert From asppp to Solaris PPP 4.0 uses the following /etc/uucp/Dialers file.
