Most likely (and assuming that the password you're using is correct),
the problem is in your /etc/pap-secrets file.
Depending on the actual version of pppd you're using, it should contain
an entry like
* mammoth "" *
* mammoth ""
If you want to make the entry specific to your client, replace
the first * with the client's account name.
