I have a problem setting up PPP in OpenServer 5.0.6. We developed a
protocol to install/setup this package on OpenServer 5.0.4 and that protocol
has also worked on 5.0.5, too. However, when we setup this package on
5.0.6, it doesn't work properly ... here is the text from my technician -

Here is a uname -X:
> System = SCO_SV
> Node = synctrl
> Release = 3.2v5.0.6
> KernelID = 2000-07-27
> Machine = Pentium
> BusType = ISA
> Serial = 3IK000605
> Users = 15-user
> OEM# = 0
> Origin# = 1
> NumCPU = 1

Here is the line from the Systems file ...
hcc Any Direct 9600-38400 8173170203 ogin:-@-ogin:-@-ogin:
xxxx...@earthlink.net ssword: xxxxxx

Bottom line: PPP attach fails, and we are not able to make any
modifications using netconfig.
