I'm trying to set up a PPP connection to my net provider. The only problem
is that it is a dynamic connection, so I have no hostname.
I tried the following to connect:
pppd /dev/tty00 19200 defaultroute connect 'chat "" ATZ OK ATDT<phone_num>
ogin: <myname> assword: <mypassword>'
It connects, tells me my IP and GW addresses, and everything seems to be fine.
When I try to ping or telnet or ftp anywhere it just responds "unknown
host". This includes the system I'm connected to!
I have the nameservers and domain set in /etc/resolv.conf and have set up
/etc/ppp/options to use /etc/ttyoo at 19200 with rtscts and defaultroute.
