OK, I've had this utterly useless bluetooth card for 3 months now. PLEASE can someone give me a hint where to go with this?
I've set up my nokia 6600 phone to dial the phone number of a dial-up access rack I admin. (I work for an ISP) Running Opera web browser under symbian on the phone I can browse perfectly.
I've set up a ppp profile with pdaXrom to dial the same number using bluetooth via the nokia.
When it does so, it gets as far as authentication with the radius servers handling that rack, where it fails because it insists on enclosing the password in double-quotes.
Here are sample log entries from the radius server, with my phone number & password obscured:
Fri Sep 2 02:00:19 2005 : Auth: Login incorrect: [newk/"password"] (from client maxdss04 port 20103 cli 8561112222)
Fri Sep 2 02:03:14 2005 : Auth: Login OK: [newk@/password] (from client maxdss04 port 20103 cli 8561112222)
Clearly there is one glaring difference between the two entries. The first is with pdaXrom in control, the second is with the nokia running on its own.
-edit- nobody even commented on the other glaring difference, the '@' in the usernames... I forgot to address that: the radius server strips the '@' before authenticating, so it's not 'really' there. Unfortunately it has no provisions to similarly strip quotes from the password... -/edit-
I've tried manually editing /etc/ppp/chap-secrets and /etc/ppp/pap-secrets to remove the quotes within those files, but pppd is still wrapping the password, choking radius on an 'invalid' password.
How can I fix this? How can I convince pppd NOT to put double-quotes around the password?
