Thanks for the reply. I do have users and passwords listed in my
/etc/ppp/chap-secrets file. I'll play with the firewall configuration some
to see if that helps, but I was curious why I would get that error about not
being able to find a suitable password.

Have you added your username/password to /etc/ppp/chap-secrets????

Is there possibly a firewall rule blocking the GRE protocol (47)?
