Yup, this should work. Even via the SoCS modems; PPP is supposed to be able
to probe the line, detect which characters don't work and only use that do.
The SoCS modems are still pretty sick though -- no rotary, sick flow control
when they work and 7e1 is just a sick joke.
(I get the feeling your against PPP already. :-)

So, what would be have to do get an allocation of IP numbers to play around
with (or better still, our own subnet?)
On a technical side, is it possible to do packet sniffing from a PPP link?
(I can't see how -- you'd need to put the ethernet interface on the remote
machine into promiscuous mode).
