Greetings --

Hope somebody connects to AT&T WorldNet via PPP...

I use ATT WorldNet as my ISP since they have 56K
multilink and are everywhere. Now I want to
establish a PPP connectin with them from Linux.
When I follow the PPP-HOWTO and quit minicom
without disconnecting, ATT hangs up. And the
desired "garbage" starts at a very unexpected time
-- not immediately, and not after name/password,
but after just name! Well, for WorldNet the login
name is something like ########@worldnet.att.net,
and after that and return the garbage starts
looking like PPP. Setting pap-secrets with the
same username and password (network password)
doesn't help -- the darn station hangs up on you
no matter what you enter.

Did anybody connect to AT&T WorldNet with PPP and
can share their PPP script?
