Huh? I never, ever had any problem connecting to Freeserve using Debian
Linux. For starters, running pppconfig will create a perfect connection
using PAP. You can easily use a script-based login too. Freeserve aheres
to the normal 'ogin:' 'sword:' format like most other IPs as well as
allowing perefctly standard PAP. I don't understand why you say they
don't accomodate Linux.
