Hi,
   I am using a iPAQ 3870, running  Pocket PC version 3.0.11171 (Build
11178). It runs on an ARM SA1110. I want to connect it to a Linux
desktop that runs Redhat 9, so as to be able to transfer files.
Some howto's I found suggested ppp. Here is the link I followed.
Similar method is also mentioned on handhelds.org for establishing a
ppp connection, he only difference being in the options of "chat".

http://mstempin.free.fr/linux-ipaq/html/index.html

Both cases I am getting a "connecting to host" pop-up on the iPAQ,
followed by retries and finally failed.
The linux host says "connect script failed"

What might be the problem ?

thanks
