I don't know if it would bear any on your problem, but at least with my
Sparc IPX and USR Sportster v90 modem, the only way I can connect via
ppp with it is by turning off flow control in both ppp and on the modem.
I think there might be some kind of funky hybrid flow control that MIGHT
work, but I don't know past that. And I max out at 38400.
