Another Linux Slackware 3.2 to Dialup NT Server Problem.

I've installed linux, got XFree running, I can print and
even share a drive with Win95. But I can't get a dialup
link with my NT server at work.  I'v read the info included
for settingup for PPP connections and even used a sample
script a freind used on a simular system.  I've read the
other 2 simular problems listed here, but they don't make
any since to me.  I'm lacking knowledge in this area and
need more specific help.  I have a normal setup. Gateway2000
P5-120 with Hayes accura 288B V.FC modem.  I can dialup the
number using both the scripts and minicom and the modem says
I make a connection, but I see no prompts.  It just sits
there.  I know the server is using PAP.  I do not know if I
have my NETWORK configured corectlly.  I'm confused in this
area.  If I left anything out here, just ask.

Dial the NT box. You should get rejected.
Look at /etc/ppp0.log, there should be an entry regarding PAP failure.
Put an entry:

your_NTusername NTdomainname NTpassword

in /etc/pap.secret

This should get you going.

I tried what you suggested  (I didn't have any pap0.log.  Or ANY
pap.log. No .logs at all in my /etc directory).  I created the file
pap.secret (it did not exist) and added,

my_NTusername NTdomainname(i added the .com at end) NTpassword

this did nothing for me.  but I got impatient and pressed cntl-z
I got this as a response to my impatience,

pppd: peer authentication required but no authentication files accessible.

does this help any?  Want any script files I'm using?
