If your interface has no assigned address, it means that you haven't 
successfully negotiated the connection with your ISP.

Have you read the FAQ at http://www.FreeBSD.org/FAQ/userppp.html ?  
Try enabling lots of logging and posting the results.  I would think 
that either your PAP/CHAP login/password is wrong or that your ``set 
ifaddr'' line is wrong.

User ppp uses the tun interface.  Pppd uses the ppp interface.
