 In addition to your normal login procedure your service provider
 is probably trying to authenticate you (again) with PAP or
 CHAP and you haven't setup your authkey/authname pair.

 Turn on all debugging and watch a connection terminate.  Clip out
 the bit around the 

10-21 15:54:26 [7620] Phase: Authenticate

 message and post here if you still can't get it working.
