ok, this isn't really ot, since i'm about to describe how to set up
ppp. this would also apply to a second computer if you only had a null
serial cable and no ethernet.
the pilot has a connect script you can access in the network settings or
modem setup somewhere. this is similar to a chat script that you'd set
up on the second linux box (minus the modem dialing part). what you
need to do is have the pilot log into the box:
and then have it run pppd with the correct parameters - see the man page
and/or the PPP-HOWTO (i'm not going to do *all* the research!). at that
point the pilot ppp stack should be activated. you'll also want to get
into the ip config for your box, but i suspect the PPP-HOWTO should
cover that. you could also have a special ppp user that runs pppd +opts
automagically as their login shell.
again, instead of a pilot you can do this with any computer hanging
about the home...
