From the error message you are receiving, it appears that your
ISP is using PAP authentication.
Try putting a timeout line (e.g., TIMEOUT 45) right after the
"ATDT..." line in your chatscript file, then enter your username
and password in the pap-secrets file as shown in the documentation
(docs in the pap-secrets file might be sufficient). Try it, and
see what happens. Make sure the permissions on the pap-secrets
file (and on the /etc/ppp directory) remain tight.
Tell us if I am wrong, old timers. I'm still a newbie. ;-)
