FreeBSD knowledgeable people - I need help.

I am using FreeBSD 2.2.2 w/ iijppp or "user PPP" and currently my ISP has
two dialup rotaries.  One rotary is analog and uses a login script.  I
managed to put together a login script and it works great and has worked
for several weeks now flawlessly.  I run ppp with the following switches:

ppp -alias -auto phoenix 

Here, phoenix is the name of my ISP's entry in /etc/ppp/ppp.conf
I also have the appropriate entry in /etc/ppp/ppp.linkup which makes iijppp
route for the 3 computers in my internal home network.

However, my ISP now has available a "digital" 33.6k+ line which operates
using Cisco AS5200's and the Password Authentication Protocol (PAP).  This
dialup line does not provide in any way a login "menu" and requires no
script at all.  In fact, if you dialin with a plain modem program such as
Minicom you see absolutely nothing when you connect -- no "login:" and no

Using Windows 95 and Windows NT's DUN/RAS I can connect to it perfectly
every time and it authenticates as it is supposed to.  I cannot, however
get iijppp to work AT ALL with it.  I've tried manually, I've tried
everything.  Here is my current entry for the PAP dialup in /etc/ppp/ppp.conf

 set line /dev/cuaa0
 set speed 57600
 set phone 2812287908
 set timeout 1200
 set ifaddr
 set redial 5 5
 disable lqr
 deny lqr
 enable pap
 disable chap
 set authname MyUsername
 set authkey MyPassword
 set openmode active

Any suggestions?  Besides dialing into this ISP I also work there, so if I
can get a good working entry it will be published on our web site for other
users to take note of.  Any help is appreciated.

NOTE: I have already read all man pages and sample files related to this
and tried everything in them -- otherwise I wouldn't be writing this.

Also, allegedly there was a tutorial posted in February or January,
however, I haven't been able to find it.  If you have something that
addresses this, please direct me as to where to find it, and/or forward it
to me.  Thank you.
