MiSTer ao486, Windows 95 and pppd/Dial-up networking to internet over TCP/IP (no success so far)

Post by implodetee »

I'm running Windows 95 on the ao486 core (latest as of 12/7/2018) and am trying to get the pppd running properly so that the Windows 95 side can connect to the internet via Dial-Up Networking.

I've tried both the native "PPP" setting as well as SSH'ing/serial console into the linux backend and running pppd like this:

Code: Select all

# sysctl -w net.ipv4.ip_forward=1
# sysctl -w net.ipv4.conf.all.forwarding=1
# pppd local lock persist maxfail 0 noauth 10.99.0.1:10.99.0.2 /dev/ttyS0 115200
In the above, the MiSTer linux side is 10.99.0.1, and the ao486 core is 10.99.0.2. The actual IP of the MiSTer Linux side is on a 192.168.x.x address. I'm assuming the serial connection is NAT through pppd?

Windows appears to connect to the pppd instance, but then fails like this:

Code: Select all

Jan  1 00:49:12 MiSTer daemon.info pppd[1775]: Using interface ppp0
Jan  1 00:49:12 MiSTer daemon.notice pppd[1775]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyS0

Jan  1 00:49:42 MiSTer daemon.notice pppd[1775]: Modem hangup
Has anyone else gotten a ppp connection working under Windows 95 using the ao486 core?

I've got the Windows side configured with a 28.8k modem, don't wait for dialtone, and the TCP/IP settings configured statically.

As stated earlier, I've had no luck using the native "PPP" setting in the ao486 core.

Any suggestions are appreciated!

Currently there is no known way to have internet on ao486.
Windows' PPP connection doesn't work with the service provided by Linux.
Since Minimig works fine with internet through the same service, the problem is not on Linux but on Windows. Probably some special settings or driver is required for Win95.

I also can run simple FTPd in DOS on ao486 and access through ethernet from PC. So the problem is in PPP link on Win95.

I can run the default Windows 95 web browser and bring up google ( well sort of . . . early 2000's Internet was pretty prehistoric ).
Is this sort of what you are after?

I have edited the Wiki. Please see the following link instructions will be there under "PPP connection ao486 Windows 95"
https://github.com/MiSTer-devel/Main_Mi ... rted-cores

I've stated this in the Wiki and I'll state it here. It can be a bit temperamental to start, but once it is going it is rock solid.

How do you configure Win95's Internet Explorer to connect to the internet? After Trumpet Winsock 3.0 is up and running does a modem need to be configured? I'm able to Ping Win95 and I can Ping Google.com from Win95 but when I open IE it wants me to configure a modem. I'm not sure what needs to be done at this point.

Edit: I guess I need to install a modem. :lol:

Awesome! Thank you! I'll give this a try. I totally forgot about Trumpet winsock, talk about a blast from the past.
