ppp does all the authentication and IP negotiation. for adsl (at least
the pppoe flavour of it), dhcp is not used.
use CHAP, not PAP - despite the fact the telstra end agrees to
PAP. (its one of a list of bugs i've told several telstra people)
and your password is all lower-case, despite what the install people
may have written down ;)
an "i survived telstra adsl" howto anyone?
