Win95 negotiation with pppd Server

I'm trying to 'configure' my pppd on a Linux box so that I can easily dial into it (say using W95 etc) _without_ having to worry about dial-up networking scripts or terminal windows etc etc. ie. just automagically logon...

At the moment, I have a working setup - so long as I use the 'bring up terminal window' option or use a script to enter the name/passwd details.  If I don't use either of these, during the verification of the name/passwd, the dialing up Win95 box and pppd won't happily negotiate automatically.

I'm getting error messages in (Win95) ppplog.txt such as:

LCP : Received and accepted ACCM of a0000.
LCP : Naking possibly loopback magic number.
LCP : Loopback! Peer nak'd with our nak of peer's magic number!
LCP : Peer requests use of magic number 5e9b4e.
LCP : Received and accepted ACCM of a0000.

... etc.  This goes on for about 10 seconds or so then gives up.  At this stage, there isn't anything significant being logged on the Linux end since it's at the early negot. stage.

I've just about tried all the logical? pppd options that I can think of. I'm currently using:

-detach modem mru 296 crtscts proxyarp

but have also added/tried many others for negotiation etc.

So!  Can anyone suggest what I'm missing or may need to perform the negotiation correctly?  I don't want to get into CHAP/PAP etc since there are too many usernames to setup chap-secrets etc on the Linux box - surely there must be something else which is going wrong?

Windows 95 uses PAP by default.  What you need is to set up tour modems so that they answer and then go directly go into ppp mode awaiting PAP autentication.  Aparently, Win95 also support CHAP but they call it MS-CHAP so I would stay away from it, it's bound to give you sleepless nights.  With PAP, you do not use encrypted password but in most case this level of security is adequate.
