#4 Windows 98 Client Hangs


When using a Ascent APX (LAC) to trunk the calls back
to L2TPNS 2.01, Windows 98 crashes or hangs, and
Windows 95 will not connect. To partially fix the
problem, set the APX to only allow PAP authentication.
This will allow Windows 98 SE client to connect,
however Windows 95 clients still cannot connect. It
seems the problem is that L2TPNS is requiring PAP
authentication from the client/LAC, however for
win95/98/me clients that initially used CHAP to auth
the LAC would request a re-auth using PAP protocol, and
at this point the win95/98/me client hangs

    It appears that normally, the LAC sends a LCP ConfigReq AVP
    requesting CHAP (with MD5) as the authentication protocol.
    L2TPNS then responds with a PPP LCP Config Req. with PAP as
    the authentication protocol. At this point, the Windows
    95/ME/98 client hangs.

    This should be fixed in the current CVS. Please reopen if
    it's not.
