Release Information

Statement introduced before JUNOS Release 7.4.

Support for PAP added in JUNOS Release 8.3.

Description

For CHAP authentication, the value sent in CHAP challenge and response packets on a per interface basis. For PAP authentication, the local hostname for sending PAP authentication requests.

For ATM2 IQ interfaces only, you can configure a CHAP local name on the logical interface unit if the logical interface is configured with one of the following PPP over ATM encapsulation types:

  • atm-ppp-llc—PPP over AAL5 LLC encapsulation.
  • atm-ppp-vc-mux—PPP over AAL5 multiplex encapsulation.

Default

For CHAP authentication, if you do not include the local-name statement in the configuration, the interface sends the router’s system hostname in CHAP challenge and response packets.

Required Privilege Level

interface—To view this statement in the configuration.

interface-control—To add this statement to the configuration.
