RE: tty00 & cua0

What problems are you having exactly? I have been able to get just about
every serial device to work in pppd, including a plug and play motorola
BitSucker Pro EZ ISDN modem. Have you tried ppp instead? The interactive
mode is makes troubleshooting devices quite a bit easier.

   in practice I never was able pppd to get working with cua*, only tty*

pppd worked correctly with cua devices in OpenBSD 2.2, but broke in 2.3.  I
have been unable to get later versions of pppd to work either with cua or
with tty on local (non-modem) connections.

In trying to track this down I found and fixed several bugs in the pccom
driver, but I was never able to find the bug I was chasing.  My current
guess is that something changed in the clib.

My workaround is to use the 2.2 pppd:

% ls -l /usr/sbin/pppd
-r-sr-xr-x  1 root  bin  102400 Oct 30  1997 /usr/sbin/pppd
