Well, all I want is to have a null-modem connection beween two PCs. I
want to put two computers into qnet over a parallel port connection.
I have to run io-net -pqnet, that I understand.
But what should I put on /dev/par1? What driver, daemon, whatever?

Don’t use /dev/par1?
I don’t think ppp expects to run/talk to a parallel port – it expects
to be dealing with a serial port.
In fact, I don’t think our parallel port drivers handle bi-directional
data transfer, and you need that for PPP.
Do you really need to run ppp accross a parallel port connection?

The system says: Connect ppp0 <—> /dev/par1
The io-net -pttcpip -ppppmgr -pqnet is running, but I can’t see
anything in the /net
Does the code you wrote work on your system?
Maybe I have some network configuration wrong…
If you can get a ppp connection up qnet should fall out.
io-net -pttcpip -ppppmgr -pqnet
I would try this over a serial port:
pppd /dev/ser1 …
