First of all i would like to explain, the PPP Server is something like a remote Server as you said ( Internet Connection ). What version of *nix are you using ? You may set a PPP server in diffrent variant Linux for instance
http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/PPP-HOWTO/ppp-server.html

Quote:
PPP (Point to Point Protocol) - provides the ability to transport TCP/IP traffic over serial lines, such as dial-up telephone lines, between two computers. Both computers run some sort of TCP/IP based network software
Also state your PPP Server Hardware specs and the Variant of *nix you are using..
