	I have been tring to figure out how to use the CBCP (Microsoft Call Back
	Configuration Protocol).  After greping around in the pppd source for
	awhile, I discovered an undocumented option 'callback' (not even mentioned in
	I think there should be some reference to this in the man page.  The
	usage is:
	callback <Phone Number>
	Where the parameter <Phone Number> is an unquoted phone number, usually
	the clients.
	Put callback <Phone Number> in your /etc/ppp/options file and connect to
	a MS-RAS server.  Given, if call back support is turned off in the
	server or for a given user, you will not be able to test this feature.
	Approximate Verbage:
	callback phone_number
		Request a call-back to the phone number, entered in the parameter,
		from a Microsoft RAS server.  If you connect to a number of different dialup
		servers, that do not support call-back, then this option should not be put in
		you main options file.
