I 'll try mpd5. Thanks.

Actually, I was concerned with userland ppp, becoz of the
scenarios where we have a FreeBSD machine and the only
 way to connect to internet is an adsl modem in bridge mode
(assuming the mode in modem, can't be  changed).
In such case the only utilty is ppp, which can be of help.

I'm using FreeBSD 9.1 RC-2.
