Any hint what relevant should be in rc.conf and ppp.conf?
Last time I used ppp dial-up when 3.1 release was the newest version, so I discover the system again...

ppp -direct, on windoze side it's not that simple.
in windoze you can connect through serial port with dialing, but you can not without dialing.

feel the power of windoze ;)

emulate modem and connecting with chatscript ;) or ask microsoft how to make windows do LESS that it can.
