PPPD System Log Messages

                      This chapter describes messages with the PPPD prefix. They are generated by the
                      Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) process (pppd), which processes packets that use PPP.


PPPD_ARGUMENT_FAILURE

System Log Message    PPPD_ARGUMENT_FAILURE:
                      Unknown option "option"

        Description   The indicated option provided on the 'pppd' command line was invalid. The
                      Point-to-Point Protocol process (pppd) initialized but ignored the invalid option.

              Type    Error: An error occurred

           Severity   error

            Action    Reissue the 'pppd' command with the correct options.

System Log Message    PPPD_AUTHENTICATION_CREATE_FAILED:
                      Unable to allocate authentication handle: system-error

        Description   The Point-to-Point Protocol process (pppd) could not allocate an authentication
                      object, for the indicated reason.

              Type    Error: An error occurred

           Severity   error

                                  interface-name: received operation-name with CHAP ID message-identifier, but
                                  authentication was already in progress

                    Description   The Point-to-Point Protocol process (pppd) received another Challenge Handshake

                                  previous CHAP response sent by that peer. The peer is resending CHAP responses
                                  faster than pppd can process them.

                                  interface-name: received operation-name with CHAP ID message-identifier, which is
                                  identical to an outstanding challenge. Peer is trying to exhort response value.

                    Description   During an exchange of authentication messages, a peer responded to a challenge
                                  message from the Point-to-Point Protocol process (pppd) by returning the same
                                  message. The pppd process did not respond to the peer, because doing so would
                                  provide the answer to the original challenge. The peer must provide the answer on
                                  its own for authentication to succeed.
