pppd-pam + radiusd question
I'm trying to use dial-in ppp server with the folloing config:
mgetty monitors modem. On detecting AutoPPP fires pppd (with pam support)
pppd authorize user via radiusd throug pam_radius_auth.so get from
The problem is the following:
User authenticated only if he exists in /etc/passwd on machine, where
And his password in /etc/shadow doesn't matter. he just need to be a local
Can anybody tell me why do I need to have this user?
AFAIK mgetty register a_ppp user, not user authenticating throu PAP.
Radiusd authentication succeded in any case (I'v seen success message from
in /var/log/syslog) of user existance in local pwdb.
I have the following config for pam:
auth required pam_nologin.so
auth sufficient pam_radius_auth.so debug
session required pam_radius_auth.so
