How to Add CHAP Support to the PPP Configuration Files on a Dial-In Server

  1. Log in to the dial-in server as superuser.
  2. Modify the /etc/ppp/options file.

    Add the options that are shown in bold for CHAP support.

    # cat /etc/ppp/options
    lock
    nodefaultroute
    name CallServe
    auth

    Where:

    name CallServe

    Defines CallServe as the CHAP name of the user on the local system, in this instance the dial-in server.

    auth

    Makes the local system authenticate callers before establishing the link.

  3. Create the remaining PPP configuration files to support the trusted callers.

    See How to Configure Users of the Dial-In Server and How to Define Communications Over the Serial Line on a Dial-In Server.
