Fedora 12 PPTP server

I’ve built a Fedora 12 Poptop rpm:

pptpd-1.3.4-1.fc12.i386.rpm MD5 bdab201d70e78abe40f873d71880f718

pptpd-1.3.4-1.fc12.src.rpm MD5 ebd64f47b0a40a7585e22a11cc4e2890

If you get this error message:
Plugin /usr/lib/pptpd/pptpd-logwtmp.so is for pppd version 2.4.3, this is 2.4.4
just comment out logwtmp option in /etc/pptpd.conf and restart pptpd with service pptpd restart.

Username/password pairs used for pptp authentication should be placed in /etc/ppp/chap-secrets
# client server secret IP addresses
username * password

To supply a DNS server to PPTP clients, just add them to /etc/ppp/options.pptpd like ms-dns A.B.C.D.

To configure local and remote PPTP client’s IP address modify localip and remoteip options in /etc/pptpd.conf.

To enable pptp server at startup run chkconfig pptpd on.

One comment.

  1. […] I have commented out logwtmp in pptpd.conf, please see my previous post. […]
