Hi, with l2tp in the l2tpd.conf I use:

listen-addr =

[lns default]
ip range =
local ip =
require chap = yes
refuse pap = yes
require authentication = yes
name = fw
ppp debug = yes
pppoptfile = /etc/ppp/options.l2tpd
length bit = yes

...the equivalent on rp-l2tp in the l2tpd.conf I must use:


load-handler "sync-pppd.so"

load-handler "cmd.so"


listen-port 1701



section sync-pppd

lns-pppd-opts "debug refuse-pap require-chap auth lcp-echo-interval 30 lcp-echo-failure 6 ms-dns"


section peer


secret s3cr3t

port 1701

lns-handler sync-pppd

hide-avps yes


section cmd

.. but the 'secret' parameter show the 'shared secret',  but it is the equivalent of what?

The content of chap-secrets it remains equal ??
