Dial in connection

I have set up my SCO Openserver 5.0.4 with tcp/ip and PPP.
I set my login shell to /usr/lib/ppp/ppp. When I dial in using dial up networking from windows 98 machine, I can dial in and get a login promt. I put in the information and its starts to scroll like normaal but have way through (right about where the copyright information is) it hangs up and I get the error: "Error 629: You have been
disconnected from the computer you dialed. Double-click the connection to try again." I checked the /var/adm/syslog to see if I could find the problem. When I checked my login, it gave me the error: "unable to connect to socket /usr/lib/ppp/PPP_ADDR: Connection refused" and on the next line: "can't connect to pppd". Does anyone know how to fix this problem so my connection isn't refused? Thanks.
