I'm using pptpd and pppd on a Debian linux host to provide VPN capabilities to mobile phones. I would like to use my OpenLDAP server for authentication and authorization purposes (instead of keeping users and cleartext passwords in
/etc/ppp/chap-secrets). Is that possible?
I have normal unix login working via libpam-ldap, does that help?
I've read some stuff about using FreeRADIUS in between pppd and OpenLDAP, but it sounds to me like overkill.
