The first task for setting up a dial-out PPP machine is to configure the devices on the serial line: the modem and serial port.
Tasks that apply to a modem usually apply to an ISDN TA.
Before performing the next procedure, you must have done the following.
Installed the Solaris 9 operating environment on the dial-out machine
Determined the optimum modem speed
Decided which serial port to use on the dial-out machine
Obtained the root password for the dial-out machine
For planning information, see Table 30–2.
