    Need help with dial-in-server

    I'm trying to set up a dial in server so my "old"
    mother-in-law access to email and so she can chat with with her grandchildren.
    I can successfuly dial back into my machine but it fails to login:
    ----------------------------------
    Jan 5 12:12:14 localhost pppd[1673]: pppd 2.3.10 started by taboo, uid 501
    Jan 5 12:12:14 localhost pppd[1673]: Using interface ppp0
    Jan 5 12:12:14 localhost pppd[1673]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyS0
    Jan 5 12:12:14 localhost pppd[1673]: peer refused to authenticate: terminating link
    Jan 5 12:12:14 localhost pppd[1673]: Connection terminated
    Jan 5 12:12:14 localhost pppd[1673]: Exit.
    ----------------------------------
    Here is my setup:
    ------------
    /etc/mgetty+sendfax/login.config

    /AutoPPP/ - - /usr/sbin/pppd file /etc/ppp/options.server
    ----------------------------------
    /etc/ppp/options.server

    -detach
    asyncmap 0
    modem
    crtscts
    lock
    require-pap
    refuse-chap
    login
    ----------------------------------
    /etc/inittab // added this line to getty section

    S2:2345:respawn:/sbin/mgetty ttyS1 -D /dev/ttyS1

    (then I did a init q)
    ----------------------------------
    kernel 2.2.15 (ack)
    ppp support is enabled
    ip_forward is enabled
    If you need any other info, just let me know.
    p.s. It will be a windows machine dialing in

    If anyone can help me out with this, I'd sure be gratefull! :-D

    What ISP are you using. It could be an authentication problem.
