Different passwords on both ends of a PPP CHAP Authentication

Unanswered Question
Nov 12th, 2009


as a default, Cisco IOS expects exactly the same passwords on both Devices that are doing PPP CHAP authentications between them.

What i need is a mutual authentication of both sides using a different password for each authentication. Assuming two routers,R1 and R2, R1 should authenticate R2 using password 1 and R2 should authenticate R1 using password 2.

Is there any way in IOS to do this?

Thank's for your Help in Advance!

I have this problem too.
