When I do the same with the direct ppp-stuff, then I got the following in syslog :
14:34:30 pppd : Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyS1
14:35:01 pppd : LCP: timeout sending Config-Request
14:35:01 pppd : Connection terminated.
14:35:01 pppd : Receive serial link is not 8-bit clean:
14:35:01 pppd : Problem: all had bit 7 set to 0
14:35:01 pppd : Hangup (SIGHUP)
