Description Michael Walter 2000-08-11 09:58:25 EDT
The ip_masq_pptp module built into the latest beta does not masquerade 
traffic to vpn servers.  It reports masq and demasq entries 
in /var/log/messages.  But does not allow communications correctly with 
the vpn server.  The same configuration vuilt into kernel 2.2.16 works 
Comment 1 Preston Brown 2000-08-14 11:46:22 EDT
Michael, stinks like a kernel issue.
Comment 2 Alan Cox 2000-08-15 09:42:20 EDT
PPTP masq shouldnt be in our kernel. This is an error. It and the ipvs patch are
mutually exclusive and this is the problem.
Comment 3 Smith, Michael 2000-08-15 10:38:01 EDT
Are there plans to include ip_masq_pptp in the next kernel beta?
Comment 4 Preston Brown 2000-08-15 11:58:16 EDT
Michael:  I'm sorry, I missed the resolution on what we are deciding to do with
this module.  Please close as necessary.
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2000-08-15 22:35:56 EDT
pptp masquerading is mutually exclusive with ipvs, as
alan said. Hence, this won't be fixed until new
code appears that fixes this conflict.
