Call the dial-in server by running the pppd command.
For example, the following command initiates a link between the dial-out machine and dial-in server myserver:
% pppd 57600 call myserver
Starts the call by invoking the pppd daemon
Sets the speed of the line between host and modem
Invokes the call option of pppd. pppd then reads options in the file /etc/ppp/peers/myserver, which was created in How to Define the Connection With an Individual Peer
Contact a host on the server's network, for example, the host lindyhop that is shown in Figure 16–1:
If the link is not working correctly, refer to Chapter 21, Fixing Common PPP Problems (Tasks).
Terminate the PPP session:
% pkill -x pppd
If you have followed all the procedures in this chapter, you have completed the configuration of the dial-up link. The following list provides references to related information.
To have users start working on their dial-out machines, see How to Call the Dial-in Server.
