Client initiated L2TP and control channel passwords
I am building a CVS application for CPEs that use client-initiated tunneling feature. IOS version is 12.4(6)T3. The l2tp-class is
configured as below:
password 7 15145D015037812E70
The password string changes at a regular interval. I have two questions w.r.t the password changes.
1) Why does it happens? I have not seen this happening on other passwords that use encryption type 7. I could not find any references to this in "L2TP Control Channel Authentication Parameters" documentation.
2) Is there a way to stop this behavior? Currently there is a diff. generated even though the actual configuration has not changed because of the change in password string.
Re: Client initiated L2TP and control channel passwords
If you configure "username xxxx password yyyyy" on a system, the encrypted form of the password will in fact change each time you do a "write memory." This is part of a "random seed" that's supposed to make the coded password harder to crack. If the box was actually configured by reading an NV config that contains the "password 7 151E080214382420" form, it should stay that way (basically, the internal format used to store the password is always the form it was "entered" in, and the password is encrypted appropriately (if it's not already encrypted) when you do the "writes.
