Are you sure it uses ppp at all? Serial connections are often just
straight serial. Try talking to the device with a serial terminal such
as minicom.

If the device does use ppp try the following:

pppd /dev/ttyS0

or whatever you serial device is. man pppd for other options like speed
flow control and such.
