PPP server only allow root to start service
Posted on 1998-02-05
I've set up my linux(RedHat 4.1) as ppp server by add
"s1:2345:respawn:/sbin/mgetty -s 38400 ttyS0" to /etc/inittab and a ppp login script
" exec /usr/sbin/pppd 38400 passive netmask 255.255.255.0 202.x.x.1:202.x.x.2"
I connect to linux using WIN95 dialup network and successfully login to my linux server, but for normal user login and start ppp login script, linux do nothing after start the script. But for root user login, everything is OK.
I suspect that there is some files which can only be accessed by root user. Anyone call tell me how fix it.
