Thank you pixeldoc for your response. I have looked in var/efw/uplinks/main/settings, the username is correct set.

But in etc/ppp/pap-secrets and etc/ppp/chap-secrets no username and no password (only if I try with Kamp-parameter. E.g. 1und1 works correct and I can see the userid and password in this files). Also I found in etc/ppp/peers/main is no username set when I try with Kamp-parameter, e.g. 1und1 is the username set. If I set the username (Kamp-parameter) manually, the username is deleted after update the connection status with the efw interface.

My 1. statement “The sign % within the userid is changed in /” is not correct.

i found the part which caused the problem

edit /etc/rc.d/ and search for "readhash"
this function reads out the efw settings files, but accepts only some defined characters within the settingsfile variables. the % sign will not be accepted.
add it somewhere to the VARCHARS variable

or replace the line

then it should work
at least the config files chap-secrets, pap-secrets and the peers file will be created correctly.

Hi Peter,

I just had exactly the same issue with PAP authentication while using a PPPoE password that included a "!" character.

Adding "!" to the parameters of VARCHARS in /etc/rc.d/ did the trick, too. Right after saving the file, endian went online.
