I have what is staring to seem like a fairly unusual requirement and
this is busy giving me nightmares.
I've built a Linux-VServer with two VE's; each of which I would like to
give access via modems and PPP to dial the outside world.
So far, so good.
I've managed to access the individual modems just fine using a device
uniquely exported int each VE as /dev/modem.
Accessing these modems using "cu -l /dev/modem" works fine, but when I
try and bring up a PPP link I get the following:
root@vs01-vc01:/# /usr/sbin/pppd.org user root call FOOCHAT
chat: Aug 22 12:07:35 CONNECT 1800000
Serial connection established.
Using interface ppp0
Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/modem
Could not determine remote IP address: defaulting to 10.64.64.64
ioctl(SIOCSIFDSTADDR): Cannot assign requested address(99)
Connect time 0.1 minutes.
Sent 126 bytes, received 150 bytes.
Please tell me what I'm missing here...
