I assume you are refering to iijppp.

Field 1 is the authname of the system on the other end which is attempting
to connect. (if the other end were running iijppp it would be the
entry in 'set authname')

Field 2 is the secret the system on the other end is using to try to get
connected (more or less). (if the other end were running iijppp it would
be the entry in 'set authkey')

Field 3 is the IP address of the system on the other end which is trying
to get connected.

Field 3 can also be of the form xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/yyy which means that
the machine on the other end can be any address within that range.

Hope this helps,
