Indeed, this seems to be a broken setup, but I would like to be sure. Could
you provide the relevant syslog so I can double check?

Heh, seems to be point that is easily forgot ;-)

That is ok, only the *secrets file contains sensitive information and should
be 600. BTW, What are the permissions of the /etc/ppp/peers/ directory and
