Let me get this straight: you used this form:
username hostname "" *
And the client specified its own IP address, but it didn't work?
Try using ipcp-accept-local or ipcp-accept-remote options, and read
/usr/doc/ppp/README.STATIC-IP... I guess that could work.
I remember seeing a very similar problem once... I also remember fixing it
by typing the password in the pap-secrets :)
