After reading this guide is really easy to setup a PPP link between HPUX and a remote system via modem. Only one question: i know the ip address of the remote system and my local ip( and so I edit the /etc/ppp/autostart file like this

pppd auto idle 3600

The question is: is possible to tell ppp to get ip automatically from remote system as Windows and Linux does?

I have tried

pppd 0:0 auto idle 3600


pppd auto idle 3600

but both failed.
