R5#ppp authentication pap callin

Means that, R5 will challange the remote peer for authentication ONLY if the 
remote peer initiated the call (ie inbound call -single authentication). If 
R5 initiated the call (ie outbound calls), R5 will not challange the remote 
peer, but the remote peer will challange R5.

Figure this as you dialing to your ISP and your ISP is challanging you(the 
ISP side will have something like 'ISP#ppp authentication pap callin'), but 
you know your ISP and do not need to challange them.

By default (ie R5#ppp authentication pap), R5 will always challange the 
remote peer and the remote peer will equally challange R5 for authentication 
regardless of who initiated the call (ie double authentication). The results 
of both authentications must be successful for the link setup to continue.
