#18077 new defect

PAP/CHAP password cannot be empty

Reported by: nschloe Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: packages Version: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Keywords: Cc:


I connect to my ISP with my username and an empty password (rather: arbitrary). Since barrier breaker, using an empty password does not work anymore. If I put anything in the password field, the connection is established.
