Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 55776
ppp-2.4.1-2 - Dial In PAM support broken for upgrade from 7.0
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:38:03 EDT
Description of Problem:
I upgraded from RedHat 7.0 and dial in to PPPd would stop with an IPCP
timeout. I installed the source RPM and ran ./configure, then cd pppd,
then make and then cp -a pppd /usr/sbin. It all works fine, now. The
default Makefile.linux has PAM=n.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ppp-2.4.1-2 / ppp-2.4.1-2.src.rpm
Other people on have posted usenet news about the problem, but no one has
posted a solution anywhere.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have pppd working in RH 7.0 (or possibly 6.2) and upgrade to 7.2 (or
IPCP: timeout sending Config-Requests
A valid logon.
The problem is not with PAM. It is with the one of the CBCP patches added to
the source tarball. When dialing in from another Linux box all is well. When
dialing in from a Windows computer, it attempts to negotiate come callback
protocol stuff and fails. Removing the two patches from the src RPM and
rebuilding it appeared to cure the problem for me.
