SSTP setup problem (VPN)

I come here, because the --debug options for the used programs won't work at all, and no debug output is created in logs. I have NO IDEA how VPN works, and bascially this wasn't as easy as NetworkManager.

I'm trying to use sstp-client found in the AUR to connect to a VPN:

(For the sake of confidentiality I've changed names+ips to trivial things)

/etc/ppp/peers/myvpn

remotename	myvpn
linkname 	myvpn
ipparam 	myvpn
pty             "sstpc --ipparam myvpn myvpngateway"
name 		mylogin
plugin          sstp-pppd-plugin.so
sstp-sock       /var/run/sstpc/sstpc-myvpn
usepeerdns
require-mschap
require-mschap-v2
noauth
lock
refuse-pap
refuse-eap
refuse-chap
nomppe
nobsdcomp
nodeflate

# Uncomment this if you want additional debug in your /var/log/messages
debug

I've ran these:

export USEPEERDNS=1
export DNS1=1.1.1.1
export DNS2=1.1.1.2

/etc/ppp/chap-secrets

# Secrets for authentication using CHAP
# client	server	secret			IP addresses
mylogin	myvpngateway	"mypassword"

sudo pon myvpn

Plugin sstp-pppd-plugin.so loaded.

sudo sstpc myvpngateway --ipparam myvpn

/dev/pts/5: The remote system is required to authenticate itself
/dev/pts/5: but I couldn't find any suitable secret (password) for it to use to do so.

Re: SSTP setup problem (VPN)

Hi grabbexi,
i'm not developing SSTP client, but just maintaining Arch package.

though first thing i'd try if i was you is putting asterisk instead of server name (myvpngateway in your case) in chap-secrets. that should work fine unless you're using same username to connect to couple of different servers
