may be all right. I just don't know what they do.
The rest of the options seem familar.

to, and then run minicom.
Then, you do
to connect to TSTT.
You should see some kind of login prompt. Enter username, passwd. It
should start PPP on that end automatically, which
looks like garbage characters coming across the line. Then, you hit
Ctrl-A,Q to quit with reset.
Then run 'pppd'.
Buss it to another terminal and check with
ps axf | grep ppp
route add default gw etc.
NB: linux does not support 'ps -aux'. Yeah, I know. It caught after
years of using UNIX too.

ppp connections were forming, but not
correctly. I ended up with several before I thought to run 'ifconfig'
and realised what was happening.
If you can get through with the minicom thing, then I suggest it's due
to some parameter being passed to ppp on its command line.
