I don't think so, CHAP packets are huge and if PPP_USE_PBUF_RAM is not 
set and your PBUF_POOL_BUFSIZE is a low value then packet allocation 
will fail (lwIP PPP stack does not support chained pbuf), this is my 
wild guess about what is happening.

Null secret is allowed in CHAP. See `secret_len = 0; /* assume null 
secret if can't find one */` from chap-new.c.

Anyway, PAP does not need big packets, and you should try PAP 
authentication with a null login and a null secret. Why compiling the 
somewhat huge CHAP support when this is just fake authentication
anyway ? :)
