Did you configure ppp with pppconfig?  Are you using pon to connect?  If
not, do so.  If so, post /etc/chatscripts/provider and
/etc/ppp/peers/provider.  Munge any passwords.

This usually happens when your ISP wants you to use scripted authentication
and you are not completing the process.  His machine is expecting more
strings when you start pppd and so echos its LCP packets back at it.  What
did you do to get Windows to connect?
