Below is the rasphone.pbk entry for my Evergreen slip connection which uses my static IP address. [EVERGREEN SLIP] Description= AutoLogon=0 User= Domain= BaseProtocol=2 Authentication=-1 ExcludedProtocols=0 LcpExtensions=1 DataEncryption=0 SlipHeaderCompression=1 SlipFrameSize=1006 SlipIpAddress= SkipDownLevelDialog=0 I played around with a PPP connection using dynamic IP and it worked fine. This works because the PPP protocol negotiates the proper IP addresses for each end of the link and the appropriate MTU etc. Below is my rasphone.pbk entry for the Evergreen PPP connection: [ENETPPP] Description= AutoLogon=1 User= Domain= BaseProtocol=1 Authentication=0 ExcludedProtocols=3 LcpExtensions=0 DataEncryption=0 PppTextAuthentication=0 PppIpPrioritizeRemote=1 PppIpVjCompression=0 PppIpAddress= PppIpAssign=2 PppIpDnsAddress= PppIpDns2Address= PppIpWinsAddress= PppIpWins2Address= PppIpNameAssign=2 SkipDownLevelDialog=0 Below is my switch.inf login script for the Evergreen PPP login using dynamic IP.

Yes NT slip will work with a TIA SLIP-via-shell account. However, Ping and traceroute will not work with a TIA SLIP-via-shell account adapter, also TIA does not support VJ compression. ============================================================================== Q4B-10: If I use WFWG V3.11 RAS to connect to a NTAS V3.5 server can I use telnet and FTP? No, the WFWG V3.11 RAS uses the NETBEUI protocol and does not support the TCP/IP protocol. You can use Peter Tattam's Trumpet Winsock which supports slip and ppp. FTP//ftp.trumpet.com.au:/ftp/pub/beta/winsock filename twsk20b.zip ============================================================================== Q4B-11: I am using Windows V3.1 or WFWG V3.11. Can I use Peter Tattam's Trumpet winsock software to connect to the NT V3.5 RAS using SLIP or PPP? What are the required configuration settings for NT and Trumpet to make this work correctly? Yes you can use the Trumpet PPP protocol to dial-in to a NT RAS PPP server. Note, you can not use SLIP for this connection since NT V3.5 RAS only supports PPP for dial-in access. However you can setup a WFWG PPP connection into a NT RAS server by using the new Trumpet 2.0B winsock. Setup Trumpet for PPP with PAP authentication as follows: Setup the following configuration for the NT RAS and TCP/IP as follows: Using the Registry editor set the following parameters: \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasMan\PPP ForceEncryptedData REG_DWORD 0 ForceEncryptedPassword REG_DWORD 0 \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters IPEnableRouter REG_DWORD 1 Setup the Windows NT V3.5 for DHCP with a pool of available IP addresses. Install the Trumpet Winsock by following the directions in Peter's install documentation. Add the path to the Trumpet directory containing the winsock.dll to your PATH statement in your Autoexec.bat. Make sure you do not have any other vendors winsock.dll files in other directories which are in the DOS path. If you do, rename them or delete them. Setup the Trumpet for PPP with your IP set to and the gateway set to Turn on PAP authentication and enter your normal NT login username and password. When you have finished configuring Trumpet using the Tcpman.exe using the Setup menu, the settings are stored in the "Trumpwsk.ini" the contents of this file should look similar to the following: [Trumpet Winsock] ip= netmask= gateway= dns=nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn time=nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn domain=your.domain.com vector=00 mtu=1500 rwin=4096 mss=1460 rtomax=60 ip-buffers=32 slip-enabled=1 slip-port=2 slip-baudrate=19200 slip-handshake=1 slip-compressed=1 dial-option=0 online-check=1 inactivity-timeout=5 slip-timeout=0 slip-redial=0 dial-parity=0 font=Courier,9 registration-name="" registration-password="h[G?"Rgl" use-socks=0 socks-host= socks-port=1080 socks-id= socks-local1= socks-local2= socks-local3= socks-local4= ppp-enabled=1 ppp-usepap=1 ppp-username="kjdskjaf" ppp-password="sakfjiej" win-posn=0 2 636 410 30 415 -1 -1 1 trace-options=0 Use the Tcpman manual login option and type ATDT NNN-NNNNN followed by a return to initiate a phone call to the NT PPP server. When you see the modem CONNECT echo, hit the ESCAPE key to start up the PPP connection negotiation. Use the TCPMAN trace menu option with DNS enabled if you want to see the connection negotiations echoed to the screen. The Trumpet PPP will handshake with the Windows NT PPP and you will be authenticated. You will then see a message on the Trumpet Tcpman screen saying accepted and then you will see the dynamically assigned IP address echoed to your screen. You can use the NT RAS Admin to view the active users after the PPP PAP authentication is complete. I was able to run the Netscape WWW client, J Junod's WS_FTP GUI FTP client, and the Trumpet Telnet client sucessfully. The DNS name resolution worked flawlessly. ============================================================================== Q4B-12: How do I configure the Chameleon NetManage PPP TCP/IP to dial-in using PPP to a NT 3.5 RAS PPP server? Use the NetManage Chameleon version 4.01 or later. Edit the slip.ini file and confirm that the PPP script contains the following line: "SCRIPT=-n" Confirm that the PPP client configuration is correct, and that the defaults are valid. The router and gateway entries should be all zero. Double-check your IP address (if dynamic allocation, this should be The subnet mask should be the default for your IP address (if dynamic, this will be given during PPP negotiations). Verify that the login name, password, and domain name are all correct. If your machine is not physically connected to a network, make sure that the MS Loopback Adapter is installed. (That is, if you are using RAS as your only network connection.) After adding the MS Loopback Adapter, the network bindings will be reconfigured. You will be asked for TCP/IP settings for the adapter. Enter your IP address and subnet mask. Leave the default gateway clear. Be sure that the Remote Access Service is installed. Select enable receiving calls. Select Control panel, then Remote Access Service, then Configure, then Network Settings enable TCP/IP in the middle section. Configure this and allow access to the entire network (this may not be necessary). Configure the addresses here (I used a static allocation). Enable a requested address, if you want the WFW machine to be able to request a specific address. Turn on IP routing and RAS forwarding. Using the Registry Editor, set "IPEnableRouter" (REG_DWORD) to 0x1 in order to enable IP routing. \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters IPEnableRouter REG_DWORD 1 Note that NTAS users can check this box in \ControlPanel\Network\TCP/IP\Configure\Advanced If other clients on the local subnet will be using the NT RAS server as a router, you should also set the following: \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasArp\Parameters You may need to add the registry key entry "DisableOtherSrcPackets". Set "DisableOtherSrcPackets" (REG_DWORD) to 0x0 to enable the IP packets from the other clients on the local ethernet to pass through the NT gateway. You can also set it to 0x1 to disable other clients IP packets. ============================================================================= Q4B-13: Where can I find a UUCP communications software package for Windows NT? UUPC/extended is a PC based version (and pun of) UUCP (UNIX-to- UNIX copy). UUPC/extended is a program which implements peer-to- peer networking for using the UNIX UUCP protocols. Windows NT, Windows, MS-DOS or OS/2 based Personal Computers using these protocols can exchange mail and files with a UNIX system or other UUPC/extended systems over dial up or dedicated phone lines.

The following is based on the information I received from several sources, you should enable the following registry entries: Also, make sure you enable routing on the NTAS servers on both ends of the PPP to PPP link. Do not use the same IP address for the local ethernet card and the RAS PPP to PPP link. The local ethernet card should have an IP assigned from you local subnet, and the PPP IP address should be assigned from the Internet providers subnet you are dialing into using RAS. You will have to use the route command to add a static route from the NT server to other machines on the local subnet. Use the netstat -rn command on the NT server to confirm proper routing table entries after you establish the RAS PPP to PPP link. Enabling Routing of IP Packets on RAS Clients for NTAS V3.5 \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters IPEnableRouter REG_DWORD:0x1 Enables IP routing REG_DWORD:0x0 Disables IP routing You must set the DisableOtherSrcPackets registry entry on RAS clients if you want to route IP packets through that RAS client. This parameter only affects forwarding of packets on the client side--this does not affect the server. Note: (I could not find this entry so I assume you must add it.) The registry path for this entry is: \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasArp\Parameters DisableOtherSrcPackets REG_DWORD:0x1 Disable IP packets from external sources REG_DWORD:0x0 Enable IP packets from external sources Controls the routing of IP packets with an IP source address other than the IP address of the RAS network adapter card. Set to 0 packets with source address other than the IP address of the RAS adapter will be sent. Set to 1 packets with source address other than the IP address of the RAS adapter will not be sent. Default: 1 We received the following message from Carl Byington with comments on the use of Windows NT as a TCP/IP gateway with IP routing enable. FROM: Carl Byington TO: Steve Scoggins DATE: 11/9/94 11:23 AM Re: Routing with PPP works! Well, it does work but there are some pitfalls. We have a class C internet network that is subnetted, and my part of it uses the subnet mask - that gives me 8 host addresses, 2 of which are loopback and broadcast so I can have 6 hosts on my subnet, although I currently have only two machines. My host addresses are .17 and .18 and the reserved ones are .16 and .23. The .18 machine is the secondary machine without a modem. The .17 machine is the primary machine with the modem and another IP address for the RAS link. The RAS link uses IP addresses .9 (the Unix end) and .10 (my end). Note that this puts the RAS link on a different network than my local ethernet. I have SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services/RasArp/Parameters/DisableOtherSrcPackets set to 0 (I had to create this entry). I have SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services/Tcpip/Parameters/IPEnableRouter set to 1. The configuration for .18 is default gateway = .17 dns server address = .130 The configuration for .17 is default gateway = .17 dns = none The RAS configuration on .17 is require specific IP address = .10 dns server address = .130 use default gateway on remote network With that configuration, if I just boot .17, I can ping .18 but not .130 since we are not connected yet. After bringing up the RAS link, I can ping .130 and the rest of the world. HOWEVER, we are not done yet. Attempts to ping from .17 to .18 cause NT to die with the blue screen. This is on the 807 debug build from MSDNII. So we reboot .17 and this time set a static route to .18 with 'route add x.x.x.18 x.x.x.17' reconnect the RAS link and everything works like a charm. Both .17 and .18 can ping the world thru the RAS link, and both can run Mosaic. WHEE!! It seems that the 'use default gateway on remote network' setting in the RAS tcp/ip dialog overrides all the local routing unless you have static routes set. If the local network had a lot of machines, that would be a real pain. In my case, I can just have the startup group run a single route add command. The other problem is that the route add does not work unless you are logged in with administrator privileges, and it does not stick around between reboots. Therefore, after every reboot, you need to log in as administrator and reset the local static routes. If you fail to do this, then bringing up the ras link and pinging local machines kills your machine. Oh well, at least the consequences are severe enough that the training time is fairly small. Thank you very much for all your help with this! ============================================================================== SECTION 5: Network Applications ============================================================================== Q5-1: What winsock software works with Windows NT or NTAS Version 3.5?

Pedro Mendes, (prm@aber.ac.uk) just finished making one such program, and it is freeware, see below: WinNT's Blat ver 1.0 has been uploaded to the following FTP sites: gepasi.dbs.aber.ac.uk:/blat10.zip ftp.cica.indiana.edu:/pub/pc/win3/nt/blat10.zip Distributions are in the form of .ZIP files, be sure to user binary mode FTP to do the transfer. Blat is a command line SMTP mail client for Windows NT, originally by Mark Neal and Pedro Mendes. A great part of the code in this program was produced by the WinVN team (including GENSOCK.DLL). Both source code and binaries for intel 80486 are distributed. Recompile the source code if you need it for a different architecture. below is a description of the program: Blat is a Public Domain (generous aren't we?) Windows NT console utility which will e-mail a file to a user via SMTP. The program requires the "gensock" DLL (borrowed from WinVN). A Registry entry is generated when the program is used with the -SMTP flag. This stores the address of the SMTP server, and the address of the _default_ sender (this may be overridden with the -f flag). Impersonation can be done with the -i flag which puts the value specified in place of the senders address in the "From:" line of the header, however if this is done the real senders address is stamped in the "Reply-To:" and "Sender:" lines.
