1.5Alpha as a server doesn't give me any problems with 1.5Alpha or
1.4Alpha clients. I just had to add the 'noauth' flag in /etc/ppp/options.
What do your config files looks like ?
Why noauth? I'm need authentication because I run pppd directly from
getty. Could this be the problem? How does the 1.5Alpha
authentication for pppd interact with 1.4.2 clients? Authentication
seems to be the major hassle for 1.5Alpha systems on IP4/non-kerberos
networks; is this another fallout from that?
Thanks for any help.
