Sep 13 19:58:03 ezekiel pppd[13795]: script pptp 65.41.59.224 --nolaunchpppd, pid 13796 The problem appears to be a CHAP authentication error. Everything I've read says this is always a passwork, domain, username problem, or four slashes in the domain username combiniation \\\\ rather then two. These things are not the problem here. Can anyone make any other suggestions?? One thing I don't understand is how the MS machine can authenticate by machine name when I'm not giving my machine name. Does it default to the hostname of my home machine and is that why I'm not getting past CHAP? If that's the case how do I make it see a different machine name? If the machine name is not necassary for VPN what else could be going on? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
