Yesterday i created three normal accounts (slackware) . I was trying to configure kppp on these accounts , and managed to connect just once in all three , after that, i got error messages ( even as root ) saying that my autentication failed (error 16 ,19 mostly) and to check my username and password.
One thing i forgot to tell you is that i`m trying to acess the internet under one single web account that my folks have made a year ago, so basically , all linux accounts have kppp configured with the same username and passwd.
well i read something about on man pppd too :
Authentication is the process whereby one peer convinces
the other of its identity. This involves the first peer
sending its name to the other, together with some kind of
secret information which could only come from the genuine
authorized user of that name. In such an exchange, we
will call the first peer the "client" and the other the
"server". The client has a name by which it identifies
itself to the server, and the server also has a name by
which it identifies itself to the client. Generally the
genuine client shares some secret (or password) with the
server, and authenticates itself by proving that it knows
that secret. Very often, the names used for authentica-
tion correspond to the internet hostnames of the peers,
but this is not essential.``
1 Can this be the problem ? (are these ``clients`` sending different information to the server ? altough i intended them (information) to be the same ?)
2 Why i got conected at first ?
3 Is there a way to do this ( enable several accounts to log on to network with the same ``username`` and ``password`` ? (not at once of course).
would really apreciate any help
I have done a fresh install and the situation i described above is no longer happenning ( i only have root account now ) and i can connect with kppp again, but i`m afraid of screwing things up again.
