Bug Fix Advisory - RHBA-2002:037-04
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Summary:
Updated ppp packages available

Updated ppp packages are available for Red Hat Linux 7.2.  These updates
fix a bug which hampered interoperability with other PPP implementations.

Description:
The version of pppd included in Red Hat Linux 7.2 incorrectly advertised
support for CBCP.  If a peer attempted to configure use of this protocol,
the LCP negotiation and the connection attempt would fail.
