I've used the default windows PPP drivers to talk to other windows
boxes, cisco 25xx series routers over the async PPP ports,
Lantronix PPP servers, Shiva PPP dial in servers, several other
boxes. Including a 3.0 windows box using trumpet.

Works well for me. PPP is PPP and TCP/IP is TCP/IP. Any
deviation will not be PPP or TCP/IP, but something else.
