ppp has a logging facility.

If your /etc/ppp/ppp.conf is an adapted version of the example file, there
should be already a line similar to this one in the "default:" section:

set log Phase Chat LCP IPCP CCP tun command

When you add TCP/IP at the end of this line, all TCP/IP packets will be logged
in /var/log/ppp.log.

Beware: This will generate a huge log file, so it should be used for debugging
only. Once you know the packets that cause the connection to be initialized, you
can build so-called dial-filters in order to prevent connections from being
established or being kept alive for certain types of traffic.
