I use Openvpn and it works great.
However sometimes I need to connect using built-in VPN mechanisms like L2TP or PPtP.
WIth L2TP I am stuck on host certificate - during installation its ask me for a certificate password - I followed instructions and there are screenshots wher U are asked for a host certificate password - but during host certificate export check box for password is not active
With PPTP I managed to connect and it worked, but only for a while.
Just after reboot I could connect and I was able to see in the loggers (pppd, pptpd, radiusd) whole communication with RADIUS and functionality was exectly as I expected, but after a while unfortunately pppd stopped sending requests to radius
|11:43:12 Plugin radius.so loaded.
11:43:12 RADIUS plugin initialized.
11:43:12 pppd 2.4.3 started by root, uid 0
11:43:12 Using interface ppp10
11:43:12 Connect: ppp10 <--> /dev/pts/1
11:43:42 LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests
11:43:42 Connection terminated.
11:43:42 Using interface ppp10
11:43:42 Connect: ppp10 <--> /dev/pts/1
|Comment: during "good" scenario I had here MPPE stateless activated and then radius request, proper authorization, and stuff informing on IPs on both sides etc |
|11:43:42 tcflush failed: Bad file descriptor
I saw several times fulvio stating that PPTP was not supported, but manual by vpn_rollercoaster show it can be done.
On the other way I can not get through this host certificate password thing
Anybody struggled with it?
Anybody can help?
