PPP/PAP Configuration Issue.

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to set up a lab in GNS3 for PPP using PAP with some c7200 routers but if I use the command 'ppp authentication pap' on both routers, on R2 I get interface up/down and in R1 remains up/up.

If I only use the command on R1, everything shows up/up

Is this expected?

I have used a video by Kevin Wallace for CCNP Route 300-101 to set this up but i've been unable to do it.

Here is the config:

______________________
R1
config t
interface serial 4/0
ip address 10.1.1.1 255.255.255.252
encapsulation ppp
no shutdown
username papuser password pappass
interface serial 4/0
ppp authentication pap
______________________
R2
config t
interface serial 4/0
ip address 10.1.1.2 255.255.255.252
encapsulation ppp
no shutdown
ppp pap sent-username papuser password pappass
ppp authentication pap

What Mark means is, configure the PAP username and password sent and the username and password in the local database on both routers if you would like to perform PAP authentication in both directions. The following example shows what I mean:

R1

config t
interface serial 4/0
ip address 10.1.1.1 255.255.255.252
encapsulation ppp
ppp pap sent-username papuser1 password pappass1
ppp authentication pap
no shutdown
username papuser2 password pappass2

R2

config t
interface serial 4/0
ip address 10.1.1.2 255.255.255.252
encapsulation ppp 
ppp pap sent-username papuser2 password pappass2
ppp authentication pap
no shutdown
username papuser1 password pappass1

Hope that is clear and answers your question.

Hi

should you not have the ppp pap sent-username on R1 too under serial to complete both way authentication
