Thank you very much for your advice. I tried it, but unfortunately the result was
exactly the same. Can you suggest anything else to try ???

Oh, I am sorry. I am not sending the string HOSTNAME. I edited the copies of my
/var/log/ppp.log and /etc/chatscripts/provider. I substituted the actual phone
number, host name, login, and password with PHONENUMBER, HOSTNAME, LOGIN, and
PASSWORD. I don't want to put that information on the net. The actual string I use
for the Host Name is OK though. It works when I use minicom.
