hi there, im a little stuck on my config, I need to put my ppp username and password in for my isp, I have seen this on an example config, what is the ppp hostname and password, and the ppp sent username, which ones do I need to use ?
ip address negotiated
no ip directed-broadcast
ip nat outside
dialer pool 1
ppp chap hostname <username>
ppp chap password <password>
ppp pap sent-username <username> password <password
It depends on what PPP authentication method your ISP uses - I would think most use CHAP. There shouldn't a problem having both configured but your router will use the method that is asked for when authenticating.
It means that for PPP authentication it will try CHAP, then PAP. The 'callin' parameter means it won't attempt to authenticate the peer when it calls out (it initiates the connection as opposed to the ISP initiating the connection. If you don't have this it attempts to authenticate the remote ADSL peer (the ISP).
You can watch what goes on if you use the following debug commands:
Yes. By default a Cisco router configured for PPP/CHAP will attempt to athenticate the router it has called as well as sending it's own credentials to the remote peer. Configuring 'callin' disables this so when it initiates the call it sends its own authentication details but doesn't bother authenticating the remote peer.
