Now your box wants to tell the ISP that it's IP-address is (it
shouldn't do this. I assume you get a IP dynamicaly by your ISP)

It tries 7 times, your ISP doesn't answer.

Your box still want's to establish its view of the IP-address. I don't
know what echo is for.

Further decrypting is left as a exercise to the reader.

Sorry, I don't have your prior posting any more, so here are my guesses
about your setup:

You dial into your ISP, which assigns dynamic IPs to the customers dialing
in. Authentification via PAP.

If this is true, then you should try the following as /etc/ppp/options:

# /etc/ppp/options
asyncmap 0

# the following two shouldn't be necessary, but as I don't know what your
# other setup-scripts look like...

# If this option is given, pppd will send an LCP echo-request frame to
# the peer every n seconds. Under Linux, the echo-request is sent when
# no packets have been received from the peer for n seconds. Normally
# the peer should respond to the echo-request by sending an echo-reply.
# This option can be used with the lcp-echo-failure option to detect
# that the peer is no longer connected.
lcp-echo-interval 30
# If this option is given, pppd will presume the peer to be dead if n
# LCP echo-requests are sent without receiving a valid LCP echo-reply.
# If this happens, pppd will terminate the connection.  Use of this
# option requires a non-zero value for the lcp-echo-interval parameter.
# This option can be used to enable pppd to terminate after the physical
# connection has been broken (e.g., the modem has hung up) in
# situations where no hardware modem control lines are available.
lcp-echo-failure 4

user my_username_at_the_isp

With /etc/ppp-secrets:

user my_username_at_the_isp	*	my_password_at_the_isp

If you want a easy to setup X frontend to pppd, mail me and I can upload
xisp-2.3-1.1.deb somewhere.
