I tried like you described. I works! But only if I 
suppose IP-Adresses in peers-file on client side: 

name ama
mtu 296

with on server side: 

"ama" "rex2" "handy" *

Commenting out 192.168. .... in /etc/ppp/peers/demon-gnokii 
and replacing  *  in /etc/ppp/chap-secrets  with: 
"ama" "rex2" "handy" 

I get: in /var/log/messages: 
    unknown host in auth. address list

I put these IPs with some new names into /etc/hosts but 
no success. I replaced  the name=... in demon-gnokii  with 
the according new name, but no success either. 

How can I convince the server to determine the IP-Adresses? 

BTW: using the SAME IP-adresses as in my lokal LAN 
   (ama is .22, rex2 is .51) 

"ama" "rex2" "handy" 

.. and commenting out 

in demon-gnokii, I get "Could not determine local IP address": 

Oct 23 00:50:15 rex2 pppd[11671]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyI1
Oct 23 00:50:25 rex2 pppd[11671]: unknown host in 
auth. address list

11692), status = 0x0
Oct 23 00:50:29 rex2 pppd[11671]: Connection terminated.

(BTW: and are well known in /etc/hosts)
