Description Ion Badulescu 1999-05-05 10:44:34 UTC
Tested with pppd. It appears that somehow the contents of
the global static variables hostname and secret are lost
after the "Start" packet is sent. Not sure if the bug is in
pam or in pwdb.

There have been massive changes in PPP, kernel, and radius code since 5.2. Is
this still a problem, or is there a possible test plan that can be put up for
duplication of this problem?

Quite frankly, this bug was opened 2 jobs and almost 4 years ago, I don't even 
have the enviroment anymore to test if it was fixed or not.

If I remember correctly, the pam_radius session module was sending only 
Accounting-Start messages, not Accounting-Stop, so it was rather useless. It 
seems to have been removed completely from pam in rh73, so perhaps it's not 
worrying about it anymore.

Ancient stuff, closing up report.
