Fellow FreeBSD'ers:

I've recently installed FreeBSD 2.0.5 from the CD-ROM on a machine at
work.  I've been using FreeBSD since 1.0 days, and have had 2.0 up at home
since last December.  The 2.0.5 CD installation was quite impressive; fast
and easy being the keywords.

Our router box is currently running BSDI 1.1, and crashes or hangs several
times every day.  I'd like to upgrade to FBSD 2.0.5, and 2.1 when it is
available, but I need to get PPP working.

I have one small problem: I can't seem to get iijppp to dial our ISP at
work.  Dialing manually (using term mode) works flawlessly, but attempting
to use the iijppp dialer results in the chat script waiting endless for
the first non-null expect string (an OK response from the modem).  Yes,
I've read the handbook on the web page, and it looks much like the sample
files I also haven't gotten to work yet.  I've saved the relevant web
pages, however, and will review my work tomorrow, when I've regained
(semi-) conciousness.

As you may have noticed, the man pages for iijppp are not all that clear.
If anyone can send me short, clear, concise instructions and/or working
sample config files, I'd be very pleased.

If I am being silly and should just configure the kernel-level PPP in the
manner that my 2.0 system is configured, please tell me.  I have no
particular bias between the kernel and user level PPPs.

Please respond via e-mail if possible; I will summarize and post responses
to this mailing list.  I know I've not contributed much to this group
lately, but I have in the past, and will contribute again once the sailing
season is over.  ;^)

Thanks in advance for your help.
