Try connecting with minicom, figure out what the session looks like then
adjust your config to match. IIRC, eircom's diallup servers don't return
a "password" prompt so your password never gets sent. I used to send both
login and password in response to the "login" prompt. A string like:
"loginname\npassword" in the "Login" field.
Conor who doesn't have to do diallup anymore...
