So the PopTop-slirp combo uses plain chap authentication.
Slirp itself is based on pppd-2.veryold ppp code and does not support
any kind of data encryption as far as I know. Correct me here
if I am wrong. Theoretically it is possible to rewrite slirp
to use the newest pppd-2.3.10+mppe patches code, but I had no
time for doing this until now.
