It has been shown to work on 1.2.XX.  I've not done it.

Because I believe 2.2 was in beta for quite some time before it came out, 
and I think Al Longyear only produced it as a stopgap before rewriting 
the whole megillah for 2.3.

Obviously this is conjecture from what I've read on linux-ppp.  Ask Al 
for the definitive answer.

By default 2.2 installs in /usr/sbin, rather than /usr/lib (the previous 
default), so you might be running the wrong one.

If you can make what you've done available, I'd be willing to test it.  
I've got a known-good dedicated PPP connection.
