FBSD 6.0 and ppp

I am trying to setup a remote FreeBSD server to allow me to dial in and
check the network in case the WAN link goes does.  I accomplished this
with 5.3, and cannot figure out what I am doing wrong on FBSD 6.0.  I am
dialing using WIndows XP to establish a PPP connection

I am using the second method outlined in man ppp.

I added the following line to /etc/gettytab.

/etc/ttys was changed to
ttyd0 "/usr/libexec/getty std.38400" dialup on secure

/usr/local/bin/ppplogin was created and permissions are 775.

The following was added to /etc/ppp/ppp.conf

   set device /dev/cuad0
   set ifaddr
   enable pap
   enable chap
   allow users xxxx


When the connection is initially dialed, I see tun1 opened (tun0 is a DSL
connection) and the PID displayed.  However, the Windows system hangs with
Verifying Password and will eventually report error 721.

Firewall rules are in place and allow all traffic from tun1.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
