Description apcot 1999-11-19 15:58:36 UTC
Have RH 6.1. Updated PPP to latest RH 6.1 patch ppp-2.3.10-3.i386.rpm. PPP stops working with the following error: ./ppp-on /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. ------- Reverted back to RH6.0 ppp distribution (ppp-2.3.7-2) and all works ok. No changes to script files in either case. FYI- Version: Linux version 2.2.12-20smp (email@example.com) (gcc version egcs-2.91.66 19990314/Linux (egcs-1.1.2 release)) #1 SMP Anyone have any ideas? Regards, John

I believe if you add 'noauth' in an appropriate spot in the PPP options (either globally or for that system), this will stop. Pppd apparently now insists on PAP/CHAP authentication in some situations where it didn't used to.

This solved the problem. Thanks.
Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-22 20:40:59 UTC
You probably already have a default route set up on your machine and you then ask pppd to set up a default route as well (with PPP, to do so is the default, so you wouldn't need to do so explicitly). pppd won't do it. The next revision of our initscripts package will solve the problem completely by deleting the default route before trying to install a new one.

Yes, I too received the same problem. I can reproduce it easily. Also, I tried reinstalling my system (for various reasons, mainly experimental), downloaded all available patches for 6.1, and after updating my PPP to the latest version (2.3.10-3.i386), I got the same problem. I will remove this package and place the old one back. Josh FeetDuck@aol.com
Comment 5 chirico 1999-11-29 10:22:59 UTC
I had the same problem, that is I lost my ppp connectivity after upgrading to the latest initscripts package. It seems that if the variable GATEWAYDEV is blank the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/if-up script put a defaultroute on every interface it mounts. On my system I solved putting a line GATEWAYDEV='none' in /etc/sysconfig/network. Now PPP works well and the route table is OK.
Comment 6 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-01-17 14:19:59 UTC
As I understand it, this should be fixed in the latest errata release of the initscripts package (http://www.redhat.com/support/errata/RHSA1999052-04.html). Please reopen this bug if it does not solve this problem.
