If you are dialing into Machine B, then you should edit Machine B's /etc/ppp/pap-secrets file and find the entry for the name and password of the machine dialing in.  The fourth field of this line can be '*' (for all IP addresses) or it can limited in various ways (man pppd).  If there's NOTHING in the fourth entry, all ip addresses are DISALLOWED.  So, if want to get running fast, put in * in that fourth field.  Or you could limit it with 192.168.1.0/24 which will limit dialins to the 192.168.1. network.
