Re: pppd problem, authentication doesn't seem to work.
Open yes, but not without authentication.
On my dialin server, /etc/ppp/pap-secrets has:
* chaos "" *
(chaos is the hostname)
The above basicaly tells it to use the /etc/passwd for authentication.
I think the key would be in the debug output from syslog after a user
attempts to dialin. Can we get a copy of that?
