PPTP on Suse

PPTP on Suse

Post by tim_9 » Tue, 12 Oct 2004 08:10:33


I'm trying to setup PPTP on a Suse Linux server and I am having
trouble. What is happening is, I get connected get assigned an
internal ip address, but I cannot ping any device on the internal
network. I can ping the internal suse linux server ip address but that
is it. The server's internal ip address is 10.1.1.254 and the assigned
ip address is 10.1.1.100 If I disable the firewall it does not matter.
Any help would be appreicated.
 
 
 

1. pptp install problems on suse 9.3

2. Disabling MRU negotiation during PPTP / LCP negotiation to a win2k pptp server

I have a Dell Inspiron with XP SP1 installed, and trying to get PPTP to
an win2k server at the office working. To cut the story short, using
ethereal, what I am seeing is that the win2k pptp server is sending back
an PPP LCP Nak because the PPP LCP Request sent by the XP SP1 machine
had an MRU of 1400, and the win2k pptp server only accepts an MRU of 1500.

How do I disable MRU negotiation on the client side ... so that it does
not send out the MRU option during the LCP negotiation ?

What is also interesting is that, other installations of XP are able to
successfully negotiate a PPTP connection. Furthermore, my linux machine
at home also have no problem establishing a PPTP connection.

To elaborate a bit, here are the relevant snippets:
