ppp and CHAP Authentication Problem
Posted on 2000-01-10
I have been trying to connect to my ISP using RedHat 6.1 and have copied the sample script files to the /etc/ppp directory. As I am required to use CHAP authentication I have added the necessary options (ie: name [username] pap-refuse) but I'm still not able to authenticate.
My ISP is telling me that my system is responding to their chap challenge with a pap response.
Could ANYONE please help me. I have been trying to solve this myself for a week now.
It seems that there are some files in the /etc/?/network-scripts/* directory that seem to capture the ppp settings and alter to some default settings but I'm not aware of how this can be changed...
