i have a FC6 server with SMB PDC with Ldap authentication. I am not currently looking to create a vpn server with ldap login auth. I just want a simple VPN server with specific users.
I found many sites on the web with specific instructions for FC4 so i followed them. I found out that FC6 comes with dkms 2.0.13-1.fc6 and ppp 2.4.4-1.fc6. So to complete the instructions i needed pptp and kernel_ppp_mppe
i got pptpd-1.3.3-1.fc6 and kernel_ppp_mppe-1.0.2-3dkms
My config files:
I have redirected TCP 1723 and GRE to the internal vpn server as supposed to
and no firewall or selinux is enabled yet.
And ofcourse i get the known error from /var/log/messages

Feb 7 09:05:20 pdc pptpd: CTRL: Client 126.96.36.199 control connection finished
Is there any solution to this?
