I've got a question concerning the file PPP.DOC that I ftp'd from the
FreeBSD ftp site.  Here is a segment from the file that my question is about:

>  To connect:
>  i) Dial to the remote host using kermit ( or other modem program )
>  enter your user name and password ( or whatever is needed to enable PPP
>  ont the remote host )
>  ii) Exit kermit. ( without hanging up the line )
>  iii) enter:
>  /usr/src/usr.sbin/ /dev/tty01 19200
>  ( put the appropriate speed and device name )
>  Now your computer is connected with PPP. 

I'm fine up through where I give name login name, password and then it asks
me for a command: if I type 'ppp' to establish a ppp connection then data
starts to spit out on the screen.  The problem is how do I get out of
kermit.  The only way I've been able to continue is to press the print
screen key which starts a new session, I guess. My other question has to do
with pppd.  I use the command line of:

# /usr/src/usr.sbin/pppd /dev/cua00 19200

and it seems to connect.  My modem one time dropped connection another time
it restarted my computer.  Honestly they are the only two I dared to try it.

As usuall I'm sure its something that isn't intutively obvious to me but
some one else has had to of trip over this problem or at least got it right
the first time.  Any help is appreaciated.
