OK, I think the chat piece is good to go now, but I don't have a good
connection yet.  Thanks to Lars Hecking and Darren Dunham for their
responses.  Lars suggested the following:

I have done this, and it seems to work as far as logging in goes.  However,
I get gobbledegook (stuff that looks like line noise) when the connection is
made, and it then times out.  (I connect by running pppd at the prompt.)

Also, when I use tip to connect from the "client" machine, I can log in as a
normal user and it acts like tip should.  When I log in as ppp_user, though,
I get the same gobbledegook as when I run pppd, and then get dropped back to
a login: prompt.

I used admintool to configure the serial ports.  I'm using a 19200 baud
connection with software flow control, with "Service enable" turned on on
the server and off on the client.  I didn't change much else.

Any ideas what could be wrong?
