Ok, I have two routers (two 2501s) connected via a back to back cable. I am running PPP encap between them. Everything works great.   However, as soon as I enable CHAP authentication the two routers cannot communicate. Any ideas?

Thanks

You need to create usernames and passwords on each router.  On routera, create a username using the hostname of routerb and specify a password.  On routerb, create a username using the hostname of routera and specify the same password as on routera:

routera:

username routerb password cisco

routerb:

username routera password cisco

Passwords must match on both routers.
