I paid a high monthly fee for my PPPOE connection. The damned ISP
offered only the client for M$ Windows. According to the packet dump,
they use CHAP for authorization and the CHAP challenge said it used
MD5. But when rp-pppoe MD5s the string of Identifier+Secret+Challenge
Value, the concentrator said the response is wrong.
Apparently the ISP-offered client is not going with the RFC 1994
standard for CHAP and obviously I cannot get their source code by social
/Is there a way to break the MD5? Or anyway around ? /I need to know my
ISP's digest scheme to get my Linux box online. I lived in a
higly-sensored country and who knows what the offered client will do
behind my back? Thanks in advance for my safety (not privay).
