PPP with a dynamic address?
My ppp connection is to an ISP that is willing to provide me with a
"static" IP address, allowing me to be the same address every time I
I have been asked by a friend to help set up his machine for ppp, but his
ISP will only provide a "dynamic" IP address. I am a bit confused about
how to deal with the entry in /etc/hosts.
For the system to work properly, is it necessary to update this file every
time a connection is made?

do, so I will not look like a total idiot ;-)
Any pointers appreciated,
