PAP Authentication

Note: This page applies to both our Austin and Houston dialup phone numbers. However, some instructions are specific to our Austin dial-up configuration, and our Houston customers should replace the following information:
  • Phone Number: the Houston phone number is 713-554-5437
  • Name Servers: the Houston name servers are 206.224.93.6 and 199.170.88.10.
  • Gateway: the Houston gateway is 206.224.93.1
Note that because of PAP and the advanced PPP negotiation available with the new AS5200's, you probably do not need to set DNS or gateway. However, correctly setting these values in your configuration will do no harm.

Illuminati Online has recently upgraded from its pool of US Robotics modems to Cisco AS5200s . One of the many advantages of this upgrade is the AS5200's ability to use PAP authentication. This means easier set-up for new users, or existing users trying to set up a new computer. The PAP connection does not require a terminal window or special script to login. To take advantage of this feature choose your method of login from the following list and follow the instructions to switch to PAP authentication.

Cisco has provided a page with initialization strings located at: http://www.cisco.com/univercd/data/doc/hardware/access/5200/cfig_nts/mod_strg.htm

Here is an initialization string for the Macintosh Global Village modems: Macintosh: A Global Village Initializtion String
