I am trying to enable PPP via USB serial cable from my laptop to my rpi. As per http://elinux.org/RPi_Serial_Connection, I have entered the following on my laptop:

sudo pppd noauth proxyarp /dev/tty.usbserial-FTGCC2MV 115200 passive local maxfail 0 nocrtscts xonxoff

However, when I try to ping, nothing happens:

ping # Does not provide any response

How do I establish PPP via serial cable ? I am running Fedora Linux on my laptop and raspbian on the pi.

  • Hello and welcome! Did you also run sudo pppd noauth on the Pi? Did running pppd on the laptop yield any output or did you check the logfiles after starting it? – Ghanima May 21 '15 at 21:05
  • The one above did not yield any output sudo pppd noauth on the pi does yield stuff, but chunks of random ascii characters – fyquah95 May 21 '15 at 22:02
