I nearly have my entire configuration runnning. Samba is talking to my NT boxes with no problems, but we are not yet connecting with the Win95 box. I know there are some issues there...I'll get it. The 95 box can connect with this Linux box using TCP/IP, so users on the box can get to the internet.

I have squid running. I have Socks5 running. I have IPChains running. All well and good.

What I don't have running is diald.

The message in the syslog is from chat. It says "Can't get terminal parameters. Inappropriate ioctl for device."

I have compiled diald for user authentication using TCP_Wrappers and PAM. The diald.conf file specifies device /dev/ttyS14. I have tried variants using the other known names for this device; /dev/ttyLT0, /dev/ltmodem, and of course, /dev/ppp0.

I recompiled without change in the message. I have also tried without providing the full path, just the device name. All give the identical error message. But the modem works; I am using it now, via a manual dialup.

The modem is a winmodem, but it is the Lucent chipset and when I compiled and linked the Lucent driver set it worked with no issues.

I don't see why there would be an ioctl issue.
Anyone have any ideas?
