Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 243061
PPTP (poptop.org) VPN connections hang under traffic
Last modified: 2012-06-20 12:17:37 EDT
Description of problem:
PPTPD VPN connections (www.poptop.org) hang under any significant traffic
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Please see the discussion at http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6530
PPTP VPN connections hangs under traffic
PPTP VPN connections should NOT hang
The fix is the patch mentioned at http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/6/11/132, please
include it in the RHEL4 kernels.
Just realized that the fix from http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/6/11/132 may not
apply exactly on the 2.6.9 series of kernels, so the fix from
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6530 might be more appropriate for
this version of the kernel.
