I’ve installed the SixFab PPP installer and all goes well for sim-cards that do not use authentication.
However, my carrier requires me to enter a username and password before i can connect to the netwerk.
Where & how could this be provided in the call script?
Any help would be very much appreciated. I can imagine more people will run into this 🙂

1. Open /etc/ppp/peers/provider
2. Remove no auth
3. Add the following configurations
password “YOURPASS”27 November 2018 at 2:43 PM #35650
Thank for your reply. This does not work. It will give me the message:
The remote system is required to authenticate itsellf but i couldn’t find any suitable secret (password) for it to use to do so.
I think this option is only applicable if the remote system is required to authenticate.
In my case I need to authenticate mysellf.
I came a bit further by filling in the ‘secrets’ file and entering my username as ‘name’ parameter in the options file.
This now leads to the message ‘CHAP Authentication succeeded’.
Then IPCP confreq is send (addr 0.0.0.0 and ms-dns1 0.0.0.0 and ms-dns2 0.0.0.0). This makes sense because the remote host needs to determine that. However, after this the modem hangs up. So 1 problem solved (authentication) but another one arrises..27 November 2018 at 4:11 PM #35651
Ps. and i am wondering if the authentication really works. If i use credentials which are not correct it still provides me the message ‘CHAP Authentication succeeded’28 November 2018 at 4:45 PM #35662
Ok – Problem solved.
