Don't touch chat.. all you need to use is PAP, the following is for RH5
or RH6 using netcfg.
# Secrets for authentication using PAP
# client server secret IP addresses
nolimits ppp1 nolimits
'ABORT' 'NO CARRIER'
'ABORT' 'NO DIALTONE'
'ABORT' 'Invalid Login'
'ABORT' 'Login incorrect'
'' 'ATZ l1'
'OK' 'ATDT142 FILL IN NUMBER HERE'
Restart networking (/etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart) and you should
have a ppp1 interface you can use to dial up Esat..
(/usr/sbin/usernetctl ppp1 up)
The USERCTL string at the end enables anyone to start and stop ppp1,
handy sometimes, security risk other times..
