I'm trying to use pptp-linux to connect to a VPN that Is iether NT based,
or uses NT authentication. Anyway, I have an IP a.b.c.d, a NT domain
MYDOM, and a user and password to work with.

I want to connect to the VPN while already conencted to the 'net via
dedicated DSL connection. I cannot get it to work. I have enabled pppd
debug logging.

I have put the following in both /etc/ppp/[chap|pap]-secrets
MYDOM\\cgalpin	a.b.c.d	passwd

When I try the following invocation of pptp-linux

[root at pooh /etc]# /tmp/pptp-linux-1.0.2/pptp a.b.c.d debug name
MYDOM\\cgalpin remotename cgalpin     
(unknown)[10342]: log[pptp_dispatch_ctrl_packet:pptp_ctrl.c:531]: Client
connection established.
(unknown)[10342]: log[pptp_dispatch_ctrl_packet:pptp_ctrl.c:637]: Outgoing
call established.

I get the following in pppd.log

Jun 21 13:58:00 pooh  a.b.c.d[9557]:
log[pptp_conn_close:pptp_ctrl.c:275]: Closing PPTP connection

Jun 21 14:51:24 pooh pppd[10347]: Connection terminated.
Jun 21 14:51:25 pooh pppd[10347]: Exit.

And all I get from a ps is

root     10342  0.0  0.3   792   420  p3 S    14:50   0:00 pptp: call
manager for a.b.c.d

Can anyone tell me what 'm doing wrong?
