Is it possible to make PPP use authentication server vs PAP/CHAP?

Post by tden.. » Tue, 09 Nov 1999 04:00:00


I have a PPP dialup server with CHAP authentication running on
Slackware 4.0.  Is it possible to have PPP use an authentication server
such as authsrv or safeword vs PAP or CHAP?

1. PAP & CHAP authentication in PPP

Hello All,

I have a SERVER for PPP connection, and tried to use PAP authentication on
my, but nothing to do.

I created the file /etc/ppp/pap-secrets, and I put the flag auth in my
ppplogin script, but when I start ppplogin, pppd says something like this:

"pppd: peer authentication required but no authentication files accessible"

My pap-secrets is

*        login      password

perhaps I missed something, but what?

Could someone help me?

Thanks for cooperation
