Add "noauth" to the pppd options to tell it you don't need the other end to authenticate. It's complaining you don't have a secrets file with the password in it you expect the client to use.

Thanks. pppd seems to be working on the linux side with "noauth" added. But I can't get a connection on the Minivmac side...

How would you configure macTCP ? Would you put the Linux machine IP as the gateway, or my main router ?
