Description Michael Walter 2000-08-11 13:58:25 UTC
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 
flawlessly.

Michael, stinks like a kernel issue.

Comment 2 Alan Cox 2000-08-15 13:42:20 UTC
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 14:38:01 UTC
Are there plans to include ip_masq_pptp in the next kernel beta?

Comment 4 Preston Brown 2000-08-15 15:58:16 UTC
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 2000-08-16 02:35:56 UTC
pptp masquerading is mutually exclusive with ipvs, as
alan said. Hence, this won't be fixed until new
code appears that fixes this conflict.
