Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a CentOS 5 server configured to be both a L2TP server and a PPTP server + a radius server for hosting the AAA.

My problem is that, the L2TP works great and I can connect to it, but can't connect to PPTP and every-time it ends up with error #619 when it gets to the verifying username and password section.

Here is the log I got from /var/log/messages

Just yesterday when I hadn't set up the L2TP yet PPTP was working great but then I uninstalled it and removed all it's config from /etc/* and installed L2TP first and then installed PPTP after it. and then it stopped to work.

I believe it must be a radiusclient issue because both of the PPTP and L2TP services use radius to authenticate.

And another thing I think must be the issue is that when assigning IPs to the PPP interfaces, I have done the following config. Is that right?

For L2TP:

localip  10.10.10.1
remoteip 10.10.10.2-254

For PPTP:

localip  10.10.9.1
remoteip 10.10.9.2-254

I strongly suggest to stop using PPTP at all. This is fundamentally broken and shouldn't be used anymore. See h-online.com/security/features/… for reasons. –  Sven Dec 16 '12 at 21:19
    
@SvenW The reason I use PPTP is that I should be able to connect with android and iOS clients too! –  Miro Markaravanes Dec 16 '12 at 21:51
