I have some hacks that show all of this stuff in a less then clear fashion, 
the pppd support in RTEMS is not currently in a working state, i can post some
hacked code with some explination of what i have done / needs to be done if 
you want.

I have got the pppd acpeting connections from a windows client and doing ftp 
/ http access over it,.. so it does work.

Again i dont have a clean patch (dont really know how to create one either), 
but if you want the code (and it might help), then i will post it private / 
or to the list.
