Fedora dialup (with token) to Windows RAS server

Has anybody successfully connected to a Windows RAS server?
I am using Fedora FC4.

I have an external modem. I can dial up but get Pap authentication error exit code=2

My account has a user name and a password made of of 4 characters followed by a changing RSA 6 digit number

I configured WVdial to prompt me for a password

#wvdial remote (remote is the name I have given to my my RAS account and settings)

I know the RAS account works fine from my Windows laptop
I have also connected to an ISP from my Linux PC

I am away from my Linux PC at the moment so I cannot remember more details.

Thanks in advance for any comments.

If I remember correctly, you need to use chap authentication when dialing into Windows RAS. Sorry, it's been quite a while since I've done this..
