Ahhhhh!! Now the concept of IP packet forwarding betwen to interfaces
never occured to me. That explains why the other workstations on the same
network as my BSD dial in machine can't see the dialed in user (if infact
OpenBSD/PPPD treats the dialin as a new interface). Great, that's two more
man pages I will add to my research and looks like I am in for a Kernel
recompile <shiver> I have done this a few times on Red Hat Linux, this
will be a first for BSD ;) But I am sure the docs are great on this.
Now, since I am going to have to recompile anyway, would now be a good
time to upgrade to OpenBSD2.3? I have the 30 something meg tarball now. I
figured it might make since to stay current. <shrug>
Anyway, the only thing left in my mind now is why didn't the win 95 box at
least see the machine it dialed into? I wonder if the PPPD PAP-
Authentication process isn't given my Dial Up Adaptor all the information
it needs or something. If anyone has a better grasp of what the 95 client
should have for set up, I am open to suggestion. Should my gateway on the
95 box be the IP of my BSD server?
