Kppp question

Post by n.. » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00



I just installed Red Hat 6.2 and have set KDE as my default desktop.
Kppp works fine running as root but when I try to run it as a user
it prompts for a root password.

I tried what the docs said, made a kppp.allow and tried a group as well.

Still only root can run kppp. Any suggestions? Thanks.

The easiest way to beat this is to replace the following line
inside your /etc/pam.d/kppp from:
    #auth sufficient /lib/security/pam_rootok.so
to
    auth  sufficient /lib/security/pam_permit.so
save /etc/pam.d/kppp

Good Luck

1. suse 7.3 kde 2.2.1 kppp question

I am now experiencing difficulty connecting to my ISP.

I wrote to my ISP and they responded thusly:

A recent upgrade to our authentication server has yielded an unexpected side
affect: users who manually authenticate, instead of using PAP, are given
shell access instead of PPP access. The fix is easy, thankfully. All that
you need to do is switch to PAP, which involves creating a file
/etc/ppp/pap-secrets that looks like:

<username>              *                    <password>

Then, you need to edit your chat script to initiate PPP immediately after
connecting, such as with this script:

#!/bin/sh
#
exec /usr/sbin/chat -v                                  \
        TIMEOUT         3                               \
        ABORT           '\nBUSY\r'                      \
        ABORT           '\nNO ANSWER\r'                 \
        ABORT           '\nRINGING\r\n\r\nRINGING\r'    \
        ''              \rAT                            \
        'OK-+++\c-OK'   ATH0                            \
        TIMEOUT         30                              \
        OK              ATDT$TELEPHONE                  \
        CONNECT         ''

My question is WHERE is the script I am to modify or is this is a new script
I need to add to somewhere.  I use kde 2.2.1 kppp to connect to the internet
and there is nothing in the GUI or any options for kppp that has a place to
place a script.
