ppp Question

Hi, I am attempting to setup a dialin PPP server. I am able to dial into my redhat 7.2 server using getty to answer the call. I am prompted to login and trying to use ppp after that. My troubles are coming as I cannot get my client to pick up an ip address automatically and the dialin server modem is not being assigned an ip address???

My /etc/ppp/options.ttyS0 looks like this:
where is the ethernet interface on my dialin server and am attempting to assign to my client. Not sure what I am doing wrong, but any help would be very much appreciated!
