Edge & private APN
I lurked for a while (well thanks to you i unlocked my brand new iphone:) and now it's time for.. questions!! ok just one.. :)
At workplace we got a private APN, wich we use to access intranet services via cellphone.
I tryed to configure the APN in the Edge Settings, with my own username and password (cleartext password.. BAD BAD BAD steve!!) but when i try to connect to intranet site with safari i've a not so nice message..
"Could not activate EDGE: PDP authentication failure"
I was having this problem times ago while trying to connect via umts from my laptop with my old nokia, what i had to do was to disable chap authentication in ppp conf file, ok, i suppose i got the PDP auth failure from iphone because it tryes to authenticate via chap... so... how could i be sure of this?
Is there any hidden configuration file were i can say to use PAP instead of CHAP?
anynone.. no idea? :(
i also tryed to create the /etc/ppp/options file but seems not working.. :(
Apple devices don't support chap authentication. You have to have your Service provider enable PAP on the APN and you also have to athenticate against a radius server. Found that if no accept packet is recieved by the device no PDP session is created
