Problem with PPPoE

Hi there,

I've been using OepnBSD for a while (10yr now, basically as router/server
at home and small office).
Right now, I have 2 OpenBSD servers:
1) OpenBSD 4.9 running on amd64 (Sun Fire v20z - old and noisy)
2) OpenBSD 5.4 running on i386 (Dell Optiplex DualCore)

I want to disable the old one, staying only with the "newer". I have 2
internet connections (one DHCP and other PPPoE).
The DHCP connection migration were fine. But I'm having problem with the
PPPoE connection.
On the old server it runs fine, but in the new one, when I enable debug on
(ifconfig pppoe0 debug) I get this:

Jul 22 16:47:16 BSD /bsd: pppoe0 (8863) state=1, session=0x0 output ->

ldapd(8) binary incompatibility, 5.4 -> 5.5

I finally upgraded my last machine - that runs ldapd(8) for user
logins, mail aliases, and a few other odds and ends - from 5.4 to 5.5.

I'm left wondering if I'm the only one who actually uses the stock
ldapd(8), because it is not called out at all in upgrade55.html as
having problems with the Year 2038 fixes that went into 5.5.

I ended up having to create a 5.4 VM (I stuck with the same amd64 arch
as my actual server, and have not investigated or tested under what
constraints this might work across architectures) to load the ldapd(8)
database files, use third party LDAP tools to create a text dump in
LDIF format, and then load the LDIF into an empty database of 5.5

It looks like particularly the btree_stat and btree_meta structs used
in the ldapd(8) btree implementation are the culprits, as it looks like
they are the only time_t bits actually stored on disk.  Since it
appears my problems are now solved, I'm mostly sending this message as
a heads up in case there is anyone still getting ready to upgrade to
5.5 that uses ldapd(8).

Something probably deserves to be in update55.html as well, but I don't
have a repeatable, documented procedure for what I did.

SHA file missing on CD1 of OpenBSD 5.5


I'm writing this
- in order to provide some feedback about my user experience (before it
even started, that is),
- because others might find a modicum of help here if they happen to
stumble on the same issue,
- in order to suggest a check for completeness for building the CD sets,
- and maybe someone might want to supply a bit of data I'm still
missing, e.g. a CD hash to cross-check. So,

I'm trying to establish a clean and uninterrupted trail of trust
(integrity-wise) from Alice the OpenBSD devs to the OpenBSD 5.5 CD set I
recently bought in a bookshop in a big german city. This proves
surprisingly difficult.

I tried to check the CDs in person with one of the devs in that city,
but he was not available at that moment (that would have been best
solution, a second channel besides all this web machinery), so I tried
other venues.

The OpenBSD 5.5 web page provides a build key (no idea what kind of
format it's in) and the web site strongly recommends checking the CD
beforehand (just what I'm trying to do) using the signify tool, but
since I have to somehow bootstap OpenBSD, I didn't have that tool nor
any other means of verification, e.g. a md5sum, sha256sum or so of the
CD is not provided on the website (that would have helped the
bootstrapping process). (With hindsight, I could have manually scripted
some SHA check for the OpenBSD hash file format.)

[OT] Commonwealth Games Ceremonies

Last night at a dress reversal of the 2014 Commonwealth Games Opening
Ceremony, I thrilled to walk my New Zealand flag in to the packed
stadium of 71 nations from the British Empire!!!

The opening is on Wednesday (tomorrow) & closing on 3rd August.

They're a lot of fun - I know as I'm performing the beauty of Scottish
culture in both!

Live an adventure,

l2tp / ipsec issue

Hey List,

I am trying to use OpenBSD 5.5 as an VPN end point for iOS 7.0 and OSX 
10.9 native VPN clients, using L2TP / IPsec.

At the moment I am running the VPN end point on an internal server and 
forwarding appropriate ports from the router:
   - UDP 500  - Internet Key Exchange (IKE)
   - UDP 1701 - L2TP traffic
   - UDP 4500 - IPSec Network Address Translation (NAT-T)

(Long term plan is to replace the router with an OpenBSD box and 
terminate the VPN there.)

It would seem that I am close, but can't over come this last issue.

When I attempt to connect from an iOS device, in /var/log/messages I see 
this error message repeated several times:

Jul 20 17:51:52 access isakmpd[2979]: responder_recv_HASH_SA_NONCE: peer
