APN with username, password authentication



Wondering if telstra sells any LTE SIM which has an authentication mechanism with user name , password (PAP-CHAP)

Normally the SIMs sold have telstra.wap as the APN and there is no authentication mechanism for the LTE connection establishment.

Wondering if anyone uses PAP-CHAP on their SIM who can help on how to configure it.

Re: APN with username, password authentication

No. You can't configure it. It is a network setting and is not used.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
