Poptop

Support section for FREESCO v0.3.x 3rd Party Packages

Postby M8RiXMaN » Fri Oct 12, 2007 3:07 pm

I have been messing with getting PopTop_1.1.3c_lightning to work and I am in a bit of a quandry from the error that I am receiving from the connection, this is what the system log states:

Oct 12 12:46:49 - pptpd[14844]: CTRL: Client xxx.yyy.zzz.www control connection started
Oct 12 12:46:49 - pptpd[14844]: CTRL: Starting call (launching pppd, opening GRE)

Oct 12 12:46:51 - pppd[14845]: Peer auth. failed for host (username)
Oct 12 12:46:52 - pppd[14845]: Connection ended.

1. (username) is created as a normal user on freesco and has a home directory.
2. (username)I(freesconame).inetI(userpassword)I* is in the /etc/PPP/CHAP-SECRETS file.

is there some format for entering these peices in this file? When I display this file in MC view/edit the (bold white I) shows up as a space as opposed to the rc_poptop setup function.

Am I being a thick noob here or what?

ok, I was being a dork.
I copied/used the formatting of the first line in MC to create additional users.
Authentication success.

No I am working on additional connectivety issues.
cannot ping gateway. cannot ping own VPN issued IPAddress.
ugh. documentation on the PopTop application is horrid and I have not been able to find any Freesco specific Poptop implementation documentation.

Has anyone else gone through the process of configuring and using PopTop?
Lightning, since this is your package you should be a little familiar with it.

1. Freesco is external router/firewall.
2. 3.8 Kernal is being used.
3. WinDoze network behind Freesco.
4. Windoze client connecting to Freesco.
5. Freesco issuing IPAddress of internal network to VPN client.
6. Host computer IPAddress subnet different than WinDoze internal network: I.E. Windoze Network=192.168.100.0 .255.0 and Windoze client local IPAddress=192.168.1.xxx 255.0

7. I can use the PuTTY client just fine connecting and traversing but my users want to connect via VPN because "it is to hard (with whiny voice) to use the PuTTY client". and "VPN" is their buzzword. (whatever) so now I am trying to get this package implemented for them.

any fine words of wisdom?
I will continue hacking away to make it work.

ok, now from the log I am connected:

Oct 12 13:56:58 - pptpd[23304]: CTRL: Client xxx.yyy.zzz.www control connection started

Oct 12 13:57:01 - pppd[23305]: found eth1 for proxy arp
Oct 12 13:57:01 - pppd[23305]: local IP address 1.1.1.170
Oct 12 13:57:01 - pppd[23305]: remote IP address 192.168.100.170


But it still does not seem to be passing traffic.
Could there be an issue with the proxyarp configuration of routing the 1.1.1.170/192.168.100.170 traffic onto the internal network?

grrr..... hacking away here.

Whoa....
After digging around a bit I see there is an "f" version of 1.1.3?

Will uninstall c version and see if I can get F version on.

DOH!
There we go, connectivity and reply on pings.
So now I can connect and all is good.

How come the "MAIN" freesco distribution site still has such an old version listed?
The 1.1.3c version seems to have issues working properly.

Next I think I am going to chew on the poptop-LPRng-SAMBA version for network browsing correct?

:wink:

poptop-LPRng-SAMBA

Be aware that this package has NOT been updated to the latest version of PoPToP. However if you install it you can install the latest version of PoPToP over the top of it and it will work. The updates to PoPToP have mainly been compatibility issues with newer versions of FREESCO. But I am glad you found the latest version and got it running.

As for your question regarding FREESCOsoft, unfortunately there is only 24 hours in every day and Howler is busy with higher priorities and since the old hosting company died it was quite a chore just to get the site rebuilt to have any packages at all and the author interface to upload new packages has not yet been implemented again.
If you are afraid that you might make a mistake. The chances are high that you will never learn anything.

Thank you, I will take that information and make note of it for future use. So far I have not had anyone complaining too loudly about network neighborhood browsing. I am just having them whack to the IP Address of the host with the shares on it and they can browse from there.

So I am not going to add the Samba piece yet. I believe in not putting things there if they are not neccessary.

Sorry about the version/freescosoft versioning question. Not my intention to nag or point fingers, just wondered why it was so different. I know you guys have had some (eh-hem) issues with domain name registration/ownership, forum crashes, mirroring and [fill in the blank] over the years. :huh: I understand that you guys have jobs and lives outside the Freesco box and I sing your praises and offer many KUDOS for what you have been able to achieve.

You guys rock.

By the way, I like the way you handled the user configuration issues with rc_poptop useradd. (golf clap)

Again I say Great job. :D and thank you.
