Use minicom to connect PPP with PAP?

Use minicom to connect PPP with PAP?

Post by Jay Zh » Mon, 28 Apr 1997 04:00:00



I used to run "minicom" to manually get PPP connection with my ISP. Now
the ISP switched to PAP for authendication. I have read ppp-howto, and it
seems that I have to use "chat". Is there any way that I still can use
minicom for PPP connection with PAP?

Thanks,

PAP happens during the PPP negotiation (LCP), *after* chat or minicom
has been used to get the serial link up.  I makes no absoultely no
difference if the stage before LCP is done manually (through a
terminal emulator like minicom) or through chat.
