Post MS-CHAP80 help


My ISP uses ms-chap80 and I'm trying to connect using redhat7.2 is there an "easy" way to setup my box to use that? I've tried downloading a newer version of pppd and read and read some more but I'm just confuzzled.I just need to know if there's an easy way to get setup.I had to reinstall win98 just to get here and I don't like it at all Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Go into KDE and setup your KPPP with your information (primary and secondary DNS, domain name, user name and password). In there you should be able to tell it whether to use PAP or CHAP authentication. Hope this helps.

Does redhat7.2 support ms-chap80?
I have everything setup in kppp but I can't connect even if I use CHAP for authentication.

To be honest, I don't really know. You should contact your ISP and find out if they support Linux. If not, change to an ISP that does. Seriously, find out from your ISP if there are any other ways to authenticate--PAP for instance.

Weird. You have your DNS and all that set up correctly right? Correct phone number too? I would think that it would at least connect to the ISP, even if it denies you. Is your modem working properly? Do you have it defined correctly (ttys# where # is 1-4 i.e. COM1 = ttys0, COM2 = ttys1, etc.)? Checked your phone cord for any problems?
