Description Leonid Kanter 2003-02-20 21:13:17 UTC
Description of problem: 
 
I have two ppp accounts at two ISPs with the same user name "leon" but different 
passwords. First account was created and tested in redhat-config-network 
successfully. But when I configured second account I found that I'm unable to use 
first account any more. The reason is that there is only one record for user "leon" in 
/etc/ppp/pap-secrets with second password! 
 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
 
redhat-config-network-1.1.97-1 
 
How reproducible: 
 
always 
 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Start internet-druid and create modem connection with any phone number, 
username "user" and password "passwd1", save changes. 
2. Start internet-druid again and create second connection with any phone number, 
username "user" and password "passwd2". 
3. Open /etc/ppp/pap-secrets 
     
Actual results: 
 
there will be following lines: 
####### redhat-config-network will overwrite this part!!! (begin) ########## 
"user"  *       "passwd2" 
####### redhat-config-network will overwrite this part!!! (end) ############ 
 
i.e. passwd1 disappeared and it's impossible to use first account! 
 
Expected results: 
 
There must be something like: 
 
####### redhat-config-network will overwrite this part!!! (begin) ########## 
"user"  ppp0       "passwd1" 
"user"  ppp1       "passwd2" 
####### redhat-config-network will overwrite this part!!! (end) ############
