If you've already received a response, forgive me--I only receive the

The required structure of the pap-secrets file changed slightly in version
2.3.x. You must now add an extra "*" to the end of the line above, to
allow any ip addresses. Buried within the pppd man page:
... Any following words on
the same line are taken to be a list of acceptable IP
addresses for that client. If there are only 3 words on
the line, or if the first word is "-", then all IP
addresses are disallowed. To allow any address, use "*".
I was burned by the same problem when setting up a ppp server for our lab.
