Palm V PPP success

In the two years I've owned my QCP-3035, I've never gotten packet data calls to work with my Palm V. It's flawless from the old PowerBook or the iBook, but dialing always timed out from the Palm. Circuit-switched data calls (dialing into a modem bank) always worked, but it's really not the most efficient use of resources. Why should I dial into an analog modem to establish a PPP connection when IS-707 provides that exact function for me in the infrastructure?

I don't know what's wrong with the Palm V dialer software, my ex-coworker Tim claims it works for him. I changed my configuration, instead of "Serial to Modem", I used "Serial to Computer", with flow control on and a port speed of 19,200, then put the init and dial commands in a connect script:
Send: AT&FX4
Send: ATDT#777


Now to get SASL and Sendmail to do authentimicated SMTP again. (Palm Eudora still doesn't support XTND XMIT over the POP port...)
