|Curious, thanks for posting such clear instructions. Just one thing, in pap-secrets did you change this line|
root arcor "internet" *
or was it this one?
arcor * "internet" *
I've had a devil of a time with this because I live in Germany and the user names and passwords have to be inclosed in quotes as they contain non-alphanumeric characters. I really don't mind using the debian pppconfig/pon/poff but since wvdial is 'on the menu' it would be nice to amke it work. Thanks. Otherwise your HOWTO couldn't be any more explicit!
I changed the word, arcor, and the word, internet, to my username and password in all lines of secrets file. I guess with German situation, you might end up with double quotes for your password. Just substitute whatever you use for username and password in other dialer programs into secrets file for the words arcor and internet leaving existing punctuation intact.
