I have tried that to see what was it that the script needed to
'expect' in order to start the connection process. Unfortunately
nothing appears. Apparently Windows '95 initiates the 'talk' with
Windows NT (I did not find out this information from our NT
administrators, but from a Linux user. The administrators were
rather clueless giving me a "with windows 95 it connects, doesn't
it?"..*sigh* microsoft certified people...).
Anyway, to answer your question, Uwe Thiem on the Linux-PPP mailing
list answered me by saying:

So this is what I'll try and we'll see what happens. =)
Thank you everyone for all your help.
