Thanks Brian,

It is very useful the info, I have read it but I am still confused about the 
getty and mgetty. After reading about it in the net it seems that mgetty 
is the better choice but it seems it needs to be installed. I am possibly 
going to try it but I am still confused about the connection between 
PPP and mgetty.
