I tried that already (got that info from a web site earlier)
Just tried it again BL3 to BL2. Won't telnet or even ping.
pppd /dev/tthS0 115200 192.168.1.1:192.168.1.2 local crtscts
registered device ppp0
reversed the numbers on the other computer.
Ping 192.168.1.1 (sends to itself in 0.0 ms)
ping 192.168.1.2 56 data bytes - nothing happens, I hit Ctrl-C
and 100% packet loss
telnet won't work either (with in.telnetd -debug on target computer)
The website said I needed to make a file /etc/ppp/options with things like
local and crtscts in it. I will try that next.
Did not help. On BL3 it just does nothing visible except tell me 56 data
bytes, on BL2 ping tells me network is unreachable.
Do I need some other sort of packet driver besides ppp?
Another sort of program?
