In our last episode, I was trying to set up my Neutrino box to answer
a call and set up a PPP session.
I have it working by starting this command in rc.sysinit:
“/usr/bin/pppd defaultroute IP_ADDR1:IP_ADDR2 57600 connect
‘chat -v -t0 -f/etc/answer’ persist /dev/ser2”
This has no security to speak of, but for my purposes, that’s all
Now my task is to dial out from the same computer on the same modem
and establish a PPP session with a remote box running basically the
configuration above. I have logging into the remote successfully
from Windows, but I would like to do it from my QNX development
I have tried Photon Dialer. The problem I run into is permission. I
can’t access /dev/ser2 as an ordinary user, but I’d rather not run my
entire Photon desktop as root. Is there a way around that?
