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.
