I use ppp on my hp300 running NetBSD.  It's at 1.0BETA but I don't know
if that much has changed to make a difference in this respect.

The difference is that a router dials my machine rather than the other
way around.

Here's what the router runs on startup:

/usr/sbin/pppd -d -d -d -d defaultroute disconnect /usr/local/sbin/kill_ppp0 mtu 1536 mru 1536 -vj crtscts modem 38400 

The modem is some V.FC thing.
