That was indeed one of the problems (doh!) :-( We now have a modem that
picks up the phone but it would appear the PPP authentication fails.

I'm going to try using login rather that PAP/CHAP to see if I get anything
usefull out of the logs.

If anyone has a working dial-in box and would care to share the config files
(sans any secrets of course :-) ), that would be most appreciated.
