Hello Erich/Matthias,

Thanks for your responses.

I do not have the usbdump command on my system. usbconfig gives the 
following output :

ugen0.1: <OHCI root HUB ATI> at usbus0, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=FULL (12Mbps) 
pwr=SAVE
ugen1.1: <OHCI root HUB ATI> at usbus1, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=FULL (12Mbps) 
pwr=SAVE
ugen2.1: <EHCI root HUB ATI> at usbus2, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) 
pwr=SAVE
ugen3.1: <OHCI root HUB ATI> at usbus3, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=FULL (12Mbps)

ugen4.1: <OHCI root HUB ATI> at usbus4, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=FULL (12Mbps)

PFA ppp.log. As you will find, it repeatedly complains of /dev/cuaU0.0 
being an invalid file. But the output of 'ls -l' shows the contrary :

Thanks for any tips/help. Which port do I need to install to get usbdump ?
