STEPS FOR CONFIGURING AN INBOUND PPP LINK
ON THE INTELLISERVER and POWERRACK VERSION 1.3.0
This document is not intended as a replacement of the spiral
bound IntelliServer Configuration Guide, its intended use is
as a down and dirty get a PPP link up cheat sheet. It assumes
that basic configuration of the IntelliServer has been done i.e.
the IntelliServer Configuration Menu (Main->Administration->IntelliServer
Configuration) has been filled out completely.
No explanations are given as to why things are set the way they
are. For this detailed information see the IntelliServer Configuration
1. Configure a Port.
PORT TYPE: LOGAN BY PORT, WAIT
LOCAL TERM TYPE:
REMOTE TERM TYPE:
AWAIT INPUT: NO
STOP BITS: 1
AUTO-PPP: YES *****version 1.4.1 and greater*****
Leave the rest at there defaults
2. Create a NVRAM user, if you are using RADIUS you may skip this
step. If you are a first time user it is recommended that you
set up an NVRAM user to aid in possible troubleshooting later
User Name test
Password "Leave this field blank"
Confirm Password "Leave this field blank"
Comment "Leave this field blank"
Connection Option Inbound PPP
Leave the rest of the fields in this form at there defaults
3. Configure Remote Profile
Remote Name Remote1
Remote IP Address The IP address you want to assign the user
Interface Address Same as the IP address of your IntelliServer
Interface Netmask Will default, depending on your answer to
Interface Type Inbound
Serial Port Either lock this Remote to a particular port
assigning the port number here or leave as ANY
to assign to any port.
Async Map 000a0000
Delay Between Redials 0
Inactivity Timeout 0
Dial in User "Leave Blank"
Phone Number "Leave Blank"
Login Script "Leave Blank"
Options Profile default
IP Filter "Leave Blank"
Authentication Protocol None
CHAP Name/Pap ID "Leave Blank"
CHAP Secret/PAP Password "Leave Blank"
You must create additional Remote Profiles for each Interface you want
to bring up. In addition after creating or modifying the Remote
Profile or Options Profile, the IntelliServer must be rebooted for
the new Interfaces (Remotes) to be active.
4. Insure that your Options Profile is set up as follows
Profile Name Default
Use Passive Mode No
Address/Control Compression Yes
Protocol Field Compression Yes
Address Negotiation Mode Enabled
Async Map Negotiation Yes
Magic Number Negotiation Yes
Maximum Receive Negotiation Yes
Maximum Receive Size 1500
Van Jacobsen Compression Disabled
Enable Proxy Arp Yes
Bring up Slip Link Immediate No
Prompt Slip Login for No.
You will then have to save the configuration by typing save at the
# prompt and then rebooting.
