Here are some things to try (if you haven't already):
Add your user account to the dip and dialout groups. Log out and log back
in afterwards. Try KUser or just do this on the shell commandline:
# adduser steve dip
# adduser steve dialout
Change 'auth' to 'noauth' in /etc/ppp/options. Now try KPPP again.
Maybe try running pppconfig (as root), go through the setup steps, then try
$ pon YourConnectionName
Or try installing and running wvdial. If none of this works, there's
probably something wrong with the modem setup. Just a thought, but
maybe /dev/ttys4 needs to be /dev/ttyS4 (capital S) for the symlink?
