Before Converting asppp Files

You can use the conversion script /usr/sbin/asppp2pppd to convert the files that compose a standard asppp configuration:

  • /etc/asppp.cf – Asynchronous PPP configuration file

  • /etc/uucp/Systems – UUCP file that describes the characteristics of the remote peer

  • /etc/uucp/Devices – UUCP file that describes the modem on the local machine

  • /etc/uucp/Dialers – UUCP file that contains the login sequence to be used by the modem that is described in the /etc/uucp/Devices file

For more information about asppp, see the Solaris 8 System Administration Collection, Volume 3, available from https://docs.sun.com.

Example of the /etc/asppp.cf Configuration File

The procedure that is shown in How to Convert From asppp to Solaris PPP 4.0 uses the following /etc/asppp.cf file.

#
ifconfig ipdptp0 plumb mojave gobi up

path
 inactivity_timeout 120     # Approx. 2 minutes
    interface ipdptp0
    peer_system_name Pgobi    # The name we log in with (also in
                                     # /etc/uucp/Systems

The file contains the following parameters.

ifconfig ipdptp0 plumb mojave gobi up

Runs the ifconfig command to configure a link from PPP interface ipdptp0 on the local machine mojave to the remote peer gobi

inactivity_timeout 120

Terminates the line after two minutes of inactivity

interface ipdptp0

Configures the interface ipdptp0 on the dial-out machine for asynchronous PPP

peer_system_name Pgobi

Gives the name of the remote peer, Pgobi

Example of the /etc/uucp/Systems File

The procedure that is shown in How to Convert From asppp to Solaris PPP 4.0 uses the following /etc/uucp/Systems file.

#ident  "@(#)Systems    1.5  92/07/14 SMI"  /* from SVR4 bnu:Systems 2.4 */
#

# .
# .
Pgobi Any ACU 38400 15551212 in:--in: mojave word: sand

The file contains the following parameters:

Pgobi

Uses Pgobi as the host name of the remote peer.

Any ACU

Tells the modem on the dial-out machine mojave to establish a link with a modem on Pgobi at any time of the day. Any ACU means “look for ACU in the /etc/uucp/Devices file.”

38400

Sets 38400 as the maximum speed of the link.

15551212

Gives the telephone number of Pgobi.

in:—in: mojave word: sand

Defines the login script that is required by Pgobi to authenticate dial-out machine mojave.

Example of the /etc/uucp/Devices File

The procedure that is shown in How to Convert From asppp to Solaris PPP 4.0 uses the following /etc/uucp/Devices file.

#ident  "@(#)Devices  1.6  92/07/14 SMI"  /* from SVR4 bnu:Devices 2.7 */

.
.
#

TCP,et - - Any TCP -

#
ACU cua/b - Any hayes
# 0-7 are on a Magma 8 port card
Direct cua/0 - Any direct
Direct cua/1 - Any direct
Direct cua/2 - Any direct
Direct cua/3 - Any direct
Direct cua/4 - Any direct
Direct cua/5 - Any direct
Direct cua/6 - Any direct
Direct cua/7 - Any direct
# a is the console port (aka "tip" line)
Direct cua/a - Any direct
# b is the aux port on the motherboard
Direct cua/b - Any direct
# c and d are high speed sync/async ports
Direct cua/c - Any direct
Direct cua/d - Any direct

The file supports any Hayes modem that is connected to serial port cua/b.

Example of the /etc/uucp/Dialers File

The procedure that is shown in How to Convert From asppp to Solaris PPP 4.0 uses the following /etc/uucp/Dialers file.
