Description

LSAC(v2)
The rp-pppoe packages provide the Roaring Penguin PPPoE client, a user-mode program that does not require any kernel modifications. This client is fully compliant with RFC 2516, the official PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) specification. This update fixes the following bug: * Prior to this update, the pppoe-server did not correctly calculate the value of the Access Concentrator (AC) Cookie on Intel 64 and AMD64 platforms. As a consequence, the pppoe-server did not return a PPPoE active discovery session-confirmation (PADS) packet to the client. This update modifies the pppoe-server code so that a PADS packet is returned. (BZ#606403) All users of rp-pppoe are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
