I've searched the last 2 days for a solution, but found nothing. So I
try it here.
I've set up a "normal" HomeLAN with a Linux Gateway (SuSE 8.1) and
several Windows Clients.
The Linux Box has the following ethernet devices:
eth0 -- 192.168.0.1/24 -- connected to LAN
eth1 -- 192.168.1.100/24 -- connected to DSL Modem
The sofware I use are (all shipped with SuSE):
First, the connection from the gateway and the clients (over
masquerading) to the internet works fine and fast. I can dial in and
Ok, now my problem.
To dialin or out I connect to the gateway using PuTTY as ssh client.
(I have configured the firewall to accept ssh --> FW_SERVICES_INT_TCP="ssh")
The connect works, so I can start the dialin with #> cinternet --start
Now it happens... After a few seconds my PuTTY session don't react
on my input and after some more time I get a POPUP telling me:
"Software caused connection abort".
Then I have to wait till the dialin process has finished. Then I can
start a new PuTTY session to the gateway.
I think it must be the firewall who disconnects me, because if I
restart the firewall without dialin in, my PuTTY session just hangs about
2 seconds. But if I am dialed in (so my ppp interface is up) and I
restart the firewall, the "connection abort" error occours again.
Thanks for your help.
