The PPP functionality is only useful if you have a T1 circuit. All it
helps accomplish is hooking up a PPP daemon to the virtual circuit to
provide the equivalent of a ISDN PPP dial up. 

There is no modem functionality there and therefore it isn't useful for
most dial up users(at least in the US). 

Also with the ability to add a .call file to the mix, you can make your
PBX do dial out PPP connections.

So now that you have been given the baby steps of what can and can't be
done. You can use it for any reason you want to.

I originally looked at it as our backup network access to/from a remote
machine that had an Ascend pipline 75. 

Now for future reference, this really is a -user question and is best
handled on the asterisk-users list
