Well, you have missed SOMETHING since there's no pppd debugging output in 
the log that you included in your original report. In fact, there is no 
pppd output at all!!!

I need to see pppd debugging output. Note that this problem is very OT for 
this list; I'll take a quick look at your debugging output but will 
probably end up refering you to the PPTP server list.

To get debugging output:

Modify /etc/syslog.conf to add the following:

*.debug				/var/log/debug

Restart syslogd

Modify your /etc/ppp/options file to add the line:


Now try to connect -- /var/log/debug will contain LOTS of output
