BitSurfr Pro PPP setup

I am unable to connect to my ISP using my Bitsurfr External with Linux.  I am able to communicate with the TA, but the login script that works with my anolog modem will not work with my TA.  Could someone please tell me the specific steps that need to be done to get me TA to work.  The connection to the ISP is PPP.

I have a machine configured to dial up using a Bitsurfr Pro external. I am logging in to my ISP with a text based login sequence, then the ISP switches to PPP.

I use chat -f with pppd to conenct, the contents of my chat script is:-

TIMEOUT 10 \
AT&F&D2&C1\V1S0=0E0V1 \
"" OK "" \
ATDT08450798667 \
"" CONNECT \
ogin: mylogin\c \
"" word: mypass\c \
"" ocol: ppp \
"" HELLO m

I had a bit of trouble getting this to work myself - it didn't work properly for me without the appropriate init string. You may need to edit the above slightly if you use PAP or CHAP to authenticate yourself. A useful tip is to add debug as an option on the pppd command line - then whatever chat sends/receives gets logged via syslog, and you can see where your script is failing if you have a problem.
