Cannot use OT/PPP...please help

Hello!  I've been using FreePPP and TCP/IP to connect to
the 'net, and for the most part, it suits me fine.  I'd like to
be able to connect using OT/PPP, to see if that would be
an improvement, but I can't get it to work.
On my 9500/132, with a SupraExpress 33.6 modem, if I
activate the PPP and Modem control panels (with FreePPP
disabled, of course), and have the proper Open Transport
Remote Access file in the Extensions folder, whenever I
try connecting with PPP, an error message tells me that there
is a problem with the modem's port setting.  I notice that
TCP/IP still shows that it's trying to connect via FreePPP,
if that makes any difference.
Can anyone suggest a work-around, or just lay out what is
necessary for me to use OT/PPP?  Thanks very much in advance!

Peace,
Eric

reinstall all the OT/PPP and OpenTransport extensions from their master disks. OpenTransport is VERY finiky about versions of extensions and whether the extensions have been dragged around etc. If the problem persists try playing with yur port setting in the modem controll panel.

Try setting AppleTalk configuration to "remote only"

if hes trying to use OT the appletalk controll panel with "remote only" in it has been replaced with a slicker version that doesnt have it.

You have done the obvious?  That is, in the TCP/IP control panel where it presently reads FreePPP, use the pop up menu and change to PPP
