don't you have any other serial port available?
I think I recall using this for an Apple Classic II.
I suppose since neither machine is networked, using Windows as the server is just as good. The other part changes the CLIENT CLIENTSERVER strings to normal ppp strings, though that should be taken care of with 'chat'.
I may give it a go anyway. I will probably just bring in my personal netbook tomorrow (to connect via ethernet).
I see no other serial port available.

Having more success. I misused single quotes in my chat script, and pppd wasn't reading ttya because it was already open. Using something like,
exec pppd file test.ppp
fixes most things but the terminal seems to be put back in cooked mode since I must hit enter after 'CLIENT' to get the 'CLIENTSERVER' response..

I made link over ttya without messing with any services basically just logged in as root on serial console and type
exec pppd /dev/ttya 9600 192.168.1.2:192.168.1.3 nocrtscts local connect "sleep 20; echo CLIENTSERVER"
That was good enough. Maybe someone else crazy as me will be helped with this. Helps to have a couple ssh sessions verus a single serial console. Now to actually learn this stuff!
