Can anyone suggest, other than using Cisco's a brand of UK-compliant boxes

two boxes are connected, the LAN's are effectively bridged together

Basically what we want to be able to do is connect a PC on a LAN, so that
at will, a number can be dialed and you can then telnet to the far end
You may be asking something else, but pretty much every PPP implementation
I've ever seen on a UNIX-like system or router has dial on demand

However, I do wonder if you are trying to express something unusual
about this setup by the use of the term "bridged" as opposed to normal
layer-3 routing.
