Please Whitelist This Site?

I know everyone hates ads. But please understand that I am providing premium content for free that takes hundreds of hours of time to research and write. I don't want to go to a pay-only model like some sites, but when more and more people block ads, I end up working for free. And I have a family to support, just like you. :)

If you like The TCP/IP Guide, please consider the download version. It's priced very economically and you can read all of it in a convenient format without ads.

If you want to use this site for free, I'd be grateful if you could add the site to the whitelist for Adblock. To do so, just open the Adblock menu and select "Disable on tcpipguide.com". Or go to the Tools menu and select "Adblock Plus Preferences...". Then click "Add Filter..." at the bottom, and add this string: "@@||tcpipguide.com^$document". Then just click OK.

Thanks for your understanding!

Sincerely, Charles Kozierok

(Page 2 of 3)

PPP PAP Control Frame Formats

Let’s start with PAP. Its three control frames are constructed as shown in Table 39. The Authenticate-Request uses one format, illustrated in Figure 37, while the other two frame types use a different format, shown in Figure 38.

Frame Type

Code Field

Identifier Field

Length Field

Data Field

Authenticate-Request

1

New value generated for each frame.

6 + Length of Peer-ID + Length of Password

 

Authenticate-Ack

2

Copied from the Identifier field of the Authenticate-Request frame for which this is a reply.

5 + Length of included Message.

Contains a one-byte Msg-Length subfield that specifies the length of the Message subfield that follows it. The Message subfield contains an arbitrary string of data whose use is implementation dependent. It may be used to provide an indication of authentication success or failure to the user. If not used, the Msg-Length field is still included, but its value is set to zero.
