Configuring Devices on the Dial-out Machine

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.

Note - 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 Oracle Solaris release 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 Before You Set Up the Dial-out Machine.
