Networking: AR28 (outbound, ISDN 2B+D)-----AR46 (inbound, dialing server)
Fault symptom: The AR28 fails to connect to the AR46 through dialup. The PPP debugging information on the AR46 shows that the IPCP negotiation is successful but the AR46 considers that the IP address authentication fails.

Check the dialup configurations on the AR46.
dialer circular-group 0
ppp mp min-bind 2
ip address 10.0.x.x 255.255.254.0
dialer threshold 0 in-out
remote address pool 1
dialer route ip 10.0.x.x 24 //It is confirmed by the R&D engineer that the dialer route is valid only when the AR46 serves as the dialer. If the AR46 is dialed and the dialer interface is configured with a primary IP address, routes to the network segment where the IP address of the dialer interface cannot be configured. Otherwise, the problem of IP address authentication failure occurs. After this configuration is removed, the AR28 successfully dials up to the AR46.
As the negotiation about PPP parameters succeeds, it is probably because that the AR46 restricts the incoming calls from the AR28. For example, ACL rules are configured.
