	It's been a long time - but this should help.

	You'll want to use ppp in dedicated mode to achieve this. Try
setting it up by hand first and then move it to ppp.conf files and arrange
boot time startup. On both sides specify device, speed and IP addresses
then on one side use the dial command to bring up the connection.

	It's similar to this vpn over ssh setup with different device
