unfortunately yes and the pap/chap option from kppp,
but while googling a few threads pointed to "ms-chap" which I have yet
to find an option for in kppp, wvdial or pppd.

also thought I should mention before its brought up I have had the
password changed twice :-/

Duct tape is one of the sacred triumvirate of the Most Important Tools
in the World. Use the Tool Triumvirate thusly:
1) If it moves and it shouldn't -- use Duct Tape.
2) If it doesn't move and it should -- use WD-40.
3) If it should sometimes move -- use Velcro.
