PPP PAP connect fails after giving IP addresses

I've been trying to log into a system that uses PAP authentication
and (sigh), it appears their directions are wrong, someone kindly
suggested dropping the +ua authfile command and when I did I managed
to get some IP numbers out, but after that nothing:

Jun  4 17:02:05 drt3 pppd[905]: Serial connection established.

ifconfig gave this, meaning I think there is some sort of communication
going on:

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback  
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          RX packets:544 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
          TX packets:544 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0

          RX packets:10 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
          TX packets:8 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0

connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/ppp/login"
asyncmap 0
#pap-restart 2
#pap-max-authreq 5

#+ua /etc/ppp/authfile

I hope somebody can help.

Thanks in advance,
