If you are not using a special MCI dialer in Win95 then it is very easy.
The normal win95 dialer looks pretty plain, it's exact look depends on the
service pack level you have, so I'm not sure how I could suggest you find
What you do is simply use chat to dial the number, no more. Start ppp
immediately and configure it for PAP authentication, set your user name
and add an entry to the pap-secrets file. Alot of terminal servers give
login prompts but will accept a ppp initialization string to enter ppp
mode and use PAP for authentication.
