Find a ray intersection on a hyperbolic secant curve


[I post this text in the topology section, and i am not sure if this was the wrong section, so i post this text here again (maybe one of the posts can be deleted)]
Find a ray intersection on a hyperbolic secant curve

i need some help to fix a hyperbolic math problem.
the problem is to find a intersection point of a ray and a hyperbolic secant curve.

known is the ray origin and the direction/angle
searched is the intersection point on the hyperbolic secant curve, or the length of the ray hitting the curve.
the origin of the ray is somewhere on the y axis at the x0 point and the hyperbolic secant curve is on the x axis perpendicular to the ray origin.

if the solution is a differential equation, pleas explain the result in basic math too.
i have not studied mathematics and what i know i taught me self.
pleas explain a solution as close to a programming language or primitive code as possible.

thanks very much for any help!!
