Hey all,

Having an issue with using authby=xauthrsasig from my workstation 
against a McAfee Sidewinder config.

I've verified most of the config is fine EXCEPT for xauth by rolling 
back to authby=rsasig and no other change, setting Sidewinder policy to 
just Single Certificate. Then VPN goes up and is good.

Here's the problem I keep seeing when xauth is enabled (which I really 

"#6: user password attribute is missing in XAUTH request"

What does that indicate I need to fix?
