Look at /usr/share/examples/ppp/ppp.conf.sample scroll down to: # Server side PPP # # If you want the remote system to authenticate itself, you must insist # that the peer uses CHAP or PAP with the "enable" keyword. Both CHAP and # PAP are disabled by default. You may enable either or both. If both # are enabled, CHAP is requested first. If the client doesn't agree, PAP # will then be requested. # > > 2.
