Description Andrew E. Mileski 2002-11-03 16:07:16 UTC
The /etc/ppp/ip-up and /etc/ppp/ip-down scripts don't export enviroment
variables from pppd:

DEVICE IFNAME IPLOCAL IPREMOTE PEERNAME SPEED ORIG_UID PPPLOGNAME CONNECT_TIME
BYTES_SENT BYTES_RCVD LINKNAME

Not all of these are available as command-line args, so they must be exported.

Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2004-08-16 16:13:15 UTC
Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or
Fedora Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.

Closing as "not a bug" for now.
