Re: fetching external mail to local LAN
1. As far as setting up the mail server for your purpose, i
suggest first read the article on Linux mail server appeared in May 98 issue
of PCQuest. You can find this article on PCQuest's site. this will help you
lot and clear your doubts.
2. Why did pppd die when u connect to net? One possible reason
may be that IP addresses u r using for your LAN r conflicting with valid
internet addresses. For LAN we use free IP addresses ,e.g. 192.168.x.x
series. u may be using addresses which can't be used for this purpose.
just check them. For at a LAN they were using 100.10.x.x series for their
series and struck with the same problem. Changing IP addresses for LAN to
192.168.x.x series solved the problem.
