VPN server (pptpd) install on Slackware 13

by malisa

– download pptpd from SlackBuilds and install
– configuration files:
— /etc/pptpd.conf – here change ip addresses for clients and server name if you want, mine:
localip 192.168.158.249
remoteip 192.168.158.250-253

— /etc/ppp/options.pptpd – encription configuration, I left it as it was
— /etc/ppp/chap-secrets – add client usernames and passwords here, like:
popeye pptpd oliva * username: popeye password: oliva server pptpd (as set in pptpd.conf)

problem:
– users cannot login, this message in /var/log/syslog:
Plugin /usr/lib/pptpd/pptpd-logwtmp.so is for pppd version 2.4.3, this is 2.4.4
solution:
– comment out option logwtmp in /etc/pptpd.conf:
#logwtmp
