Debian’s key database has gotten badly corrupted. The machine is down at present and is being restored from backups. It should be available again in about an hour.

In the meantime, please use one of the other debian derived machines such as julinux.yellow-snow.net, mint.eskimo.com, mxlinux.eskimo.com, ubuntu.eskimo.com, or zorin.eskimo.com.]]>

Presently, our dial-up customers are unable to authenticate.

We have tested our radius authentication servers and those of our wholesale provider and found the issue to be with the providers authentication servers.

I attempted to generate a ticket via the normal means at GlobalPops loginto.us website and found the ticket link broken on their website as well.

Since they normally do not allow phone tech support and have no means of contacting other than the now broken ticket system, I called their retail dial-up center and got them to generate a ticket for me. I was assured I would receive a copy in my e-mail and someone would contact me but so far neither has occurred.]]>

We found servers in our logs that were not in our server configuration.

Further investigation determined that GlobalPOPs had added additional radius servers but had not informed us. Requests coming from new servers not in our configuration were rejected causing authentication failures.

I obtained a complete list of their radius servers, added it to our clients.conf file and now authentication is functioning again.]]>
