Description: I have upgraded from Red Hat 5.2 to 6.1. After that ppp
connection still worked until i updated all available packages using Update
Agent several times. After last update ppp stopped to work:
I worked to isolate the problem to single package and it is:


I installed the prev. version - initscripts-4.63-1.i386.rpm - and after
rebooting the system ppp worked properly.

I installed back latest version - initscripts-4.68-1.i386.rpm - and ppp das
not want to work at all. When starting ppp directly by


response is:

[root@localhost atanas]# /usr/sbin/pppd
/usr/sbin/pppd: The remote system is required to authenticate itself but I
/usr/sbin/pppd: couldn't find any suitable secret (password) for it to use
to do so.

I have the same problem with the new initscripts, except my
system is a clean 6.1 install rather than an upgrade.

Workaround for this which did it for me:

Add 'noauth' to your /etc/ppp/options file.
