Weblog:   PPTP VPNs in Jaguar
Subject:   Error connecting
Date:   2002-09-04 14:06:57
From:   slowslow
I have a connect timeout error when I try to connect to a Windows VPN server. The log says:


PPTP connection established.
Using interface ppp0
Connect: ppp0 <--> socket[34:17]
LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests
Connection terminated.
PPTP disconnecting...
PPTP disconnected


The timeout occurs after 30 seconds. Any idea what would cause the Connect line to timeout. What is ppp0 <--> socket[34:17]?


Thanks for any help.

    I get slightly different messages in my Internet Connect log:

    Wed Oct 20 10:44:50 2004 : PPTP connection established.
    Wed Oct 20 10:44:50 2004 : Using interface ppp0
    Wed Oct 20 10:44:50 2004 : Connect: ppp0 <--> socket[34:17]
    Wed Oct 20 10:44:53 2004 : Fatal signal 10


    That's it, then I get the Unexpectedly Terminated dialog in Internet Connect. Anyone know what "Fatal signal 10" is?

    This appears to be a firewall issue. If you have your firewall enabled, disable it and try to connect. I'm having the same problem, but I can't figure out what firewall setting is giving the error message

    a friend at work just set up linux to talk to our windows pptp server, and the magic thing was apparently the option "refuse-eap". however, the mac ppp plugin does not apparently accept this as an option.

    when i tcpdump the config-req packets coming from our server i see EAP in there. and i guess the osX pppd does not know what to do with that option, so it just times out.

    so we may be stuck. i didnt see pppd in fink, but that does not mean that the linux pppd could not be ported to osX.
