sorry. i have too much faith in ESP i guess. this is the script that is
supposed to run:
/usr/sbin/pppd /dev/caau1 modem crtscts 115200 lock asyncmap 0
defaultroute debug passive persist
It's supposed to bring up the PPP interface, but it doesn't. but running
the script manually (not the command itself) does.
There is no references in /var/spooll/messages that the script was even
attempted at bootup.
