Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-10-14 23:15:12 EDT
Description of problem:
The update to NetworkManager breaks pptp support somehow; now it just shows the "connecting" icon endlessly, without actually connecting or timing out.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a PPTP VPN
2. Try to connect
3. ps auxwww | grep pptp
Actual results:
No connection ever brought up; the underlying connection still works. 'ps' shows that pptp is not started, but the following processes are running:

root /usr/libexec/nm-pptp-service state: S
user /usr/libexec/nm-pptp-auth-dialog -u <some-uid> -n <VPN-name> -s org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.pptp state: SL

Killing the user process aborts the connection attempt.

Expected results:
Connection should just work; used to before the update (that ironically is PPTP-related!)

Additional info:
Connection details: allowable protocol MS-CHAP v2, and when it was working with NM-PPTP, I had to toggle on MPPE for the connection to work. Disabling SELinux does not make any difference.

Can you provide any logs or information from /var/log/messages?
Comment 2 Dan Williams 2008-10-27 23:25:48 EDT
How about with NM svn4201 and latest PPTP plugin?
Comment 3 Dan Williams 2008-10-28 23:48:43 EDT
Nevermind, found the cause, terribly sorry, will push out a .1 update for the pptp plugin tomorrow.
