The local router uses the username and password specified by the ppp pap sent-username command to authenticate itself to a remote device. The other router must have this same username/password configured using the username command described above.
Note: The function of the local username command for PAP is different than its function for CHAP. With CHAP, this username and password are used to generate the response to the challenge, but PAP only uses it to verify that an incoming username and password are valid.
To make it simple, imagine the authentication as a client server issue, if the server is used to authenticate using PAP then the client must be configured to use PAP and the same for CHAP, thus you can have one side using PAP to authenticate the other and the other side using CHAP to authenticate the first side, put you'll end up having both PAP and CHAP configuration on both sides.
