PPP problem with IP Masq
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
Upgraded to RH6.1 and started having problems with the PPP.
I am running IP Masq on the system. When I try to connect to my
ISP, the PPP Daemon insists on using PAP to auth the connection.
The ISP is a script-based connection, running RH 5.2.
Had to uninstall ppp-2.3.10-1 and install ppp-2.3.7-2 to get connected.
If I disable the NIC in the system, it connects under ppp-2.3.10-1 fine.
enable the NIC and it goes back to trying to use PAP.
Please upgrade to the latest versions of the initscripts and ppp packages
available from our web server, and see if they fix your problem:
Upgraded to the latest versions of initscript and ppp. Still having same
problem. Had to go back to ppp-2.3.7-2 to get back online. Phillip Turner
I don't think IP masq has anything to do with it, but I think I've seen odd
behavior when the dialing machine already had a default route set before
starting PPP. Do you have a GATEWAY or GATEWAYDEV defined in
/etc/sysconfig/network? If you do, try removing them.
That was the problem. I removed the Gateway and GatewayDev, restarted the
network, and everything seems to be fine now. Thank you for your time and help
