10.4: Configure a secure L2TP VPN -- authentication workaround
Authored by: andrew.paier on Jul 31, '10 09:46:18AM
I could not figure out on my 10.6 install how to get MSCHAP working. When it was in place I got the "CHAP authentication Failed" error. I could not get around this. If I removed MSCHAP you could log in, but you could be any user you wanted as long as you knew the shared secret. I changed the line

                AuthenticatorProtocol = (MSCHAP2);
to

                AuthenticatorProtocol = (PAP);
And now you need the shared secret and your password correct.

10.4: Configure a secure L2TP VPN -- authentication workaround

For anyone trying (as I was) to get this working in 10.7, this is the fix that worked for me. No need to use dscl to change the local user account's password encryption.
