Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 29376
Special chars in username not handled properly
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 EDT
When having an username with an '#' (e.g. the German T-Online ISP has such
names) it will be put into the secret-file without quoting.
Because ipppd interprets '#' as comment-sign all information behind it will
be ignored and authentification will fail.
I suggest to quote the name in /etc/init.d/isdn:178 (and below in current
- create_option_file "user \"$USER\"" "$1"
+ create_option_file "user $USER" "$1"
Uups; diff-output swapped...
It's fixed with internet-config-0.33-1. Thanks.
