my pap/chap-secrets seem not to be ok. The called PC claims: 
 The remote system is required to authenticate itself
 but I couldn't find any suitable secret (password) for it to use to do so.

Changing "auth" in login.config to "noauth" I get a ppp-connection 
with IP's like in /etc/ppp/peers/demon-gnokii  described: Okay (First SUCCESS, I was glad ..!)
But I urgently need auth, of course, because of security!
I put name entry from /etc/ppp/peers/demon-gnokii into 
pap-secrets and chap-secrets of both pc's but the called
PC claims the same.

Which name have I to set? The name of the linux-machine? 
I think not, I think I can take any name. 

Is it necessary to put the name with IP into /etc/hosts? 

BTW: can I force mgetty to accept DataCalls only from one MSN, the
     MSN of my handy?
