On the client, you use left=%defaultroute, and it will pick its dynamic ip
On the server, you use right=%any, to mean clients can connect from any ip.

In chap-secrets, you store the IP that you are *assigning* to your client via the tunnel.
This can be a range or a single ip. If specifying a range, xl2tpd will keep
