A guess, and it *is* a guess, is PPP for the TA and HDLC for the
DIVA card. That assumes that PPP and HDLC both mean synchronous PPP.
It's also possible that the card and TA have no common ISDN protocol.
I would expect TAs to favor V.120 but the card doesn't seem to have
that. I don't know how the TA would handle the difference in transfer
rates for synchronous PPP on one side and asynchronous on the other
(the host side).
I really don't have the background for answering but maybe an answer
with a guess is better than no answer (and maybe not :/).
