Can you send me the pppd parameters you ued to do this. I managed to get this
working before, but I lost my notes. As for your problem, the Palm to linux connection
should be in a different subnet such as 192.168.1.x. Also make sure you turn on
IP forwarding. It all worked for me except for DNS. I could use the a Palm ping
and telnet program fine only if I used IP addresses and not hostnames.
