I had the same problem connecting with a Windows NT server. It seems that
the NT machine has two protocols that Linux doesn't recognize and Linux has
two that NT doesn't have. My solution was to "comment out" the CCP protocol
in main.c of the pppd source and recompile. In my case the connection would
work sometimes and not others. After recompiling, I have had no problems.
you can see more of what is going on by putting "debug" in the call to pppd
in your ppp-on script and looking in /var/adm/messages. I suspect that you
have another problem beside the CCP one.
I tried to e-mail you my setup, as an attachment, but the message bounced.
