Hello, I must correct my earlier post. Your having both pap and chap enabled may not be why your connection attempts are failing. From RFC 1661: In order to establish communications over a point-to-point link, each end of the PPP link MUST first send LCP packets to configure and test the data link. After the link has been established, the peer MAY be authenticated. Because your problem seems to exist in establishing the link, authentication may not even enter into it. As to your new question, what does, "Too many LCP REQs sent." mean, the message indicates that for some reason the LCP negotiation between your friend's computer than the ISP's NAS did not succeed during the permitted number of attempts. The reason for that is almost certainly due to a misconfiguration on your end. Determining what the particular misconfiguration is requires examining the relevant config and log files. You may find the following documentation of assistance: RFCs 1661 (PPP), 1334 (PAP), 1994 (CHAP), 2516 (PPPoE), in addition to man ppp(8) and http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/pppoe.html (URL may have wrapped). The source code of PPP and Netgraph may also be revealing, but I'm not a C/C++ person, so I don't know for sure. HTH, Stheg _______________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
