Ok.. The server is a dial-up server that I wanted to accept connections
from anyone who is using a valid username/password.

I need to have any user in the /etc/passwd file able to login using ppp,
so I've got the login option and the auth option.  Is there a way to aviod
adding a line to pap-secrets for every user I want to be able to login using
ppp?  I've done it in the past but I'm now thinking it's setup incorrectly,
as I was using "*	*	""	*" in pap-secrets.
