RHN Errata Alert: Updated ppp packages available

Updated ppp packages available

Updated ppp packages are available for Red Hat Linux 7.2. These updates fix a bug which hampered interoperability with other PPP implementations.

The version of pppd included in Red Hat Linux 7.2 incorrectly advertised support for CBCP. If a peer attempted to configure use of this protocol, the LCP negotiation and the connection attempt would fail.
