Why send an empty CCP request? That implies that you know CCP and
that you're willing to negotiate parameters for it.
If you don't actually support CCP, then that's incorrect. You should
not send requests for things that you don't implement, and should send
LCP Protocol-Reject if you happen to receive a request from the peer.

Please post debug logs. We cannot see the operation of your system
from here, and English text just doesn't do protocol exchanges any
At a really wild guess, I'd expect that you've not received an IPCP
Configure-Ack from the peer. Did you implement the state machine as
described in RFC 1661 *completely*?
Note that CCP and IPCP are independent, at least in good
implementations. This means that it's possible for IPCP to come up
while CCP is stuck or failed.
Note also that some systems specifically *require* the use of CCP, and
if you don't implement it, then you'll fail to interoperate with those
systems. That would include any system that's using Microsoft's
proprietary encryption (MPPE) mechanism.
