Actually, no. The P15 is a terminal adapter a la the Motorola BitSURFR Pro.
It's more or less the next generation of Ascend's NetWARP Pro. It can be
used like any other modem directly with NetBSD, but as far as I know,
there's no STAC compression, multichannel support, blah, blah, blah, for
NetBSD right now.
My suggestion to the original poster: If you have a P15, trade it up for a
P75 and use an Ethernet card instead. For the speed and flexibility, you
won't regret it. :) (Note I don't mention the P25: it's a product Ascend
intends to dump in the near future.)
