My dialup isp has a bunch of local access numbers for my area, more than 20
listed but the problem is there is only one that works. The rest of them
spit out some ugly crap as follows:

We do not support Terminal Server, please use PPP

Login: xxxxxx

PPP: Not enabled

No matter what dialing client I use, kpp, minicom, it doesn't matter.
wvdial, etc. doesn't matter. always the same stupid messages.
