Question LineControl: issues with setup

I'm trying to set up the "LineControl" server/client package (here) to remotely control an analog modem on my Linux server from a Windows XP workstation. I was able to successfully compile the daemon that runs on the server, and have it working, but I'm having trouble getting the WinXP client working: it connects to the server, but won't display link status and won't allow me to use the connect/disconnect functions. Here is the (hopefully) relevant portion of my linesrv.conf file on the server:
line CWNet 
script_up /etc/ppp/wanup 
script_dn /etc/ppp/wandown 
interface ppp0 
con_type netdev 
#mklog yes 
line_baud_up 53000 
line_baud_down 53000 
allow_manually no 
#script_esc /etc/ippp/isdn.hangup 
#con_status_file /var/lib/linesrv/con-is-up 
con_timeout 20 
#con_down_timeout 60 
send_throughput yes 
line_locking no
Last week, I posted a request for assistance on the LineControl mailing list maintained by the author of this utility, but so far I have received no response and I really need to get this working properly. Hopefully someone on this forum has had experience with this software and can give me some pointers.

FWIW: wanup and wandown are short scripts that I wrote to bring the link up or down. Currently, I'm connecting to the server via SSH (PuTTY) and running those scripts to control the PPP interface, and they are working fine, so I'm pretty sure those aren't the problem here...

Thanks in advance!
