Looks fine to me, so long as there's a time interval between the
last two lines. You need to run pppconfig with the chat method
of authentication. The when you type pon and it sees the ppp
garbage (~y}#.!}!}!}~), it'll exchange LCP and you'll be on.

Then you don't need the shell account, just the ppp connection.

Tell pppconfig the username and password as above, using chat
(not chap or pap) authentication.
