Dialup Setup - Linux
To connect Linux to Sound Internet you will need to obtain pppd software. Most Linux distributions come with this, otherwise it is available from ftp://sunsite.unc.edu.
If your system creates a 'default' route entry in your routing table you will need to remove the route before running PPP. You can check this by typing route. To remove the default route type route del default at your prompt. Here's an example:
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window Use Iface
localnet * 255.255.255.0 U 1500 0 24297 eth0
loopback * 255.0.0.0 U 3584 0 18 lo
default * * UG 1500 0 117874 eth0
info:~# route del default
Once you have 'pppd' and 'chat' installed in your /usr/sbin directory, you may use this PPP script to connect. You will need to edit the script for your modem port, your modem speed, your username, and your password.
Once this is configured you will want to check out the Quick reference settings to configure your DNS settings.
