I had this very same problem. For partial relief, I set FreePPP to
"allow applications to open....", set "disconnect if idle 1 minute...."
So far this arrangement has worked on both my PB5300c and PowerWave 120
(604 PPC) with the occasional hang. The problem seems to be that the
application leaves a static IP address in TCP/IP where there should be
<will be supplied by PPP server> (or words to that effect). The next
time FreePPP attempts to dial out, there is no one there to Okay the
signon. Perhaps the next client will offer better manners when it comes
to disconnecting and cleaning up.
Hope this helps. Dale Mosher
