first of all (if you haven't done this) upgrade to xisp-2.3p4.deb as it
solves a few bugs around. You can find it at
We need some more information.

1. What messages do you get in /var/log/ppp.log (add debug to
/etc/options.xisp) ?

2. Do you get a loginprompt from your isp (you have to use a script with 
win95 to login) or does your isp use pap authentification ?

3. Do you try to connect as root or as a "normal" user who is in group
dialout ?
