It is a PPC module. However, since I was having problems with it I decided
to install the PAM module for my x86 workstation (from the Ubuntu Hardy
repository). I'm getting the same results. The client/server talk to each
other but the password doesn't seem to be decrypted when the auth request
gets to the server.
This is why I was thinking maybe I've mis-configured my test server.
I've also double checked how I was building the PPC PAM module. I'm using
the provided makefile and setting up the compiler and linker to use the
proper ppc build tools. Any ideas of where I could be going wrong when
By the way, this is the entry in the top of my "users" file on my RADIUS
