Well, just run "Internet Setup", choose "New" and select "Direct
Serial 19.2", give it a setup name and _no_ phone number. then
enter username and password.

tap on "continue" to enter IP settings and another tap on
"continue" to create a login script. mine looks like this:
Send User Name
Send <CR>
Send Password
Send <CR>

My timeout is 60 seconds.

would you mail us a short HOWTO? My pppd runs not well in this
