I played round with this a while ago on my Ultra10 and had exactly the
same problems. I tested the modem and line under a different OS as
well as NetBSD x86 and they behaved fine. As soon as I tried it on
the U10 I kept on getting this "not 8 bit clean" message.
I tried it on a -current system and also on a 1.6 system where I had
back ported the drivers from -current. Both times I got the same errors.
I chatted to firstname.lastname@example.org about this a while ago and had no
immediate luck. He asked for some debugs of the PPP connection but
unfortunately by that stage my U10 was doing something different and I
never got back to him.
Maybe someone could pick it up from here . . . .
