Because ppp Setup allow this choice:

   [1] Configure PPP for connections to your ISP via modem.
   [2] Configure PPP to link together two PCs via cable.

I think a better solution should be to provide a [3]th solution:

  [3] Configure PPP to accept incoming dial-in request

 and to rename the "go" script simply "start-ppp".

But please, let me know: do you setup in setup/server the agetty in
dialin mode, it's true? It work properly for you without

If you can implement that in general way, thanks: otherwise, I will
try soon.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
