FreeBSD 2.1.5 here, using pppd, proxyarp, chap and no login prompt.
Basically, the user enters the phone number, their host name (as it
appears in /etc/ppp/chap-secrets), and their password (from same place).
If you have any problems, watch the console or messages, you might get a
more informative message there, though it sounds like you already are.

pppd launched by this line in /etc/ttys (all on one line):

ttyd0 "/usr/sbin/pppd : /dev/ttyd0 57600" dialup on 

/etc/ppp/options contains

asyncmap 0
name horst

/etc/ppp/chap-secrets (obviously edited).

*** horst ********
*** horst ********
*** horst ********
*** horst ********

where the three *** are the user name, and the 8 are the password (you
aren't limited to these lengths, it's just the way we set up our system).
