I am currently attempting to set up PPP between my Pi and my Ubuntu 13.04 Toshiba Satellite A105 via the Serial Cable, as per this site: http://elinux.org/RPi_Serial_Connection.
I successfully (I think) started PPP Daemon on my pi via
sudo pppd it worked for a second then gave me this:
pppd: The remote system is required to authenticate itself
pppd: but I couldn't find any suitable secret (password) for it to use to do so.
I ignored this because of the RPi Serial Connection page it says:
Step 1: login to the Raspberry Pi over the serial cable and run the Point-to- Point Protocol Daemon:
Some garbage will start appearing in the terminal. This is the cue to quit your terminal program and proceed to step two.
So I did this and then proceeded on to step two. This is where my problem begins (I think.)
I started another terminal for connecting to my Pi and entered the command given to me in step two:
sudo pppd -detach noauth proxyarp /dev/ttyUSB0 115200 10.0.0.1:10.0.0.2 passive local maxfail 0 nocrtscts xonxoff
This is where I have trouble. It tells me this:
nate@excelion-Satellite-A105:~$ :~$ sudo p-detach noauth proxyarp /dev/ttyUSB0-0 115200 10.0.0.1:10.0.0.2 passive local maxfail 0 nocrtscts xonxoff [sudo] password for nate: pppd: unrecognized option '/dev/ttyUSB0-0' pppd version 2.4.5 Usage: pppd [ options ], where options are: <device> Communicate over the named device <speed> Set the baud rate to <speed> <loc>:<rem> Set the local and/or remote interface IP addresses.

What am I doing wrong? My Ubuntu system is totally up to date (just ran apt-get upgrade last night) and I just installed ppp onto my Pi about 20 minutes ago ( as of 2:30 10/31/2013)
