Accessing a VPN (PPTP) via the command line
Authored by: UltraNurd on Mar 14, '03 03:42:18PM

Any idea what "CHAP Authentication Failed" means? I tried messing around with the various options, although it is possible that I have my domain or user name entered incorrectly... Any suggestions?

Three suggestions:

1. Look at the file /tmp/ppp.log to see the details. Maybe it'll give you an idea.

2. On the Windows server end, they have to go to your account information and check a box that says something like "allow dial-in" to give you VPN access. Evidently this box is unchecked by default. (At least it was for me.)

3. Double-check with the IT people on what your passsword should be. It may not be the same as your "network login" when you're there.
