Configuring PAP Authentication

The tasks in this section explain how to implement authentication on a PPP link by using the Password Authentication Protocol (PAP). The tasks use the example that is shown in Examples of PPP Authentication Configurations to illustrate a working PAP scenario for a dial-up link. Use the instructions as the basis for implementing PAP authentication at your site.

    Before you perform the next procedures, you must have done the following:

  • Set up and tested the dial-up link between the dial-in server and dial-out machines that belong to trusted callers

  • Ideally, for dial-in server authentication, obtained superuser permission for the machine where the network password database is administered, for example, in LDAP, NIS, or local files

  • Obtained superuser authority for the local machine, either dial-in server or dial-out machine
