PAP2 ID Password or Auth ID?

OK, having finally got my account to work (only taken 2 years - not non stop I will grant them!) on my Mac, I'm now trying again to use an old Linksys PAP2.   I have found Puddy's excellent looking settings piece but am a bit confused over the Subscriber Information.  The boxes ask for:
Display Name - is this the tel number/ext that I would like displayed (ie doesn't really matter)?
Now there are 4 more boxes for completion:  
Password:  the one emailed to me (ie nothing to do with my PlusNet normal account setting)
User ID: is this also the SIP ID number?
Use Auth ID: a Yes or No option - I believe this should be set to yes
Auth ID: is this also the SIP ID number?
Simple I know, but easily confused!!  Smiley
Cheers,
Jon

Re: PAP2 ID Password or Auth ID?

First thing, you might want to remove your actual SIP id and tel no's since this is a public forum.
Other than that you seem to have got everything right.

Re: PAP2 ID Password or Auth ID?

OK so all working now - ish!
I can talk with my sister in the USA on her cell (mobile) but not on her landline!  When I phone her landline I don't hear a ring tone, but eventually get her answer machine.  At her end, the phone rings, she picks it up but just gets static (when she's on the phone/engaged, her phone will go straight to answer machine).
Guys, any ideas?
Cheers,
Jon

@oj, That explains it, I was just trying to reply to it. Smiley
@jon, That's a strange one!. I suspect that might need PlusNet/Gradwell to trace the call and see what's happening.
