Thank you for the excellent responses:

Get Trumpet Winsock for your PC from (The University
of Tasmania), under /pc/trumpet. It's a $25 piece of shareware.

For the Workstation:
  (1) go with Solaris' default PPP.
           (a pain to setup and often buggy.)
  (2) Morningstar PPP
           ($895 if you have unlimited pocket change at home!) or
  (3) Slirp.
           (A free, easy to setupslip/ppp emulator you can get at

With regards to setup in Solaris. The admintool should be enough.
