Hi,

I'll make a bet that if you disable compression on your side, that it will
work fine!!  I've seen this same problem with the Xyplex 1600 and 1700 systems.
I've also had long talks with Xyplex people on this one.  The main problem is
that I'm not a PPP expert.  I would either go to CSLIP or disable header
compression on your side.

Gary
