Thanks, that works.

But I got another error:
when I start ppp (as root), I got this messages:

# /sbin/ppp -auto ondemand
Working in auto mode
Using interface: tun0
Error: rt_Update: ioctl(SIOCSIFDSTADDR): no such device
Error: rt_Update: ioctl(SIOCSIFNETMASK): no such device

I use the ppp.conf.sample as this (paste in /etc/ppp/ppp.conf and
update login, password and DNS).
I've try with other labels than 'ondemand' and with other devices
(original /dev/cuaa1 -> /dev/ttyS0, /dev/tty00, /dev/tty01)
but I always got the same errors.

I use a single machine, with a simple modem.
On Linux, I have my modem on /dev/ttyS0.

So, can I connect my GNU/Hurd box to the net with an ISP ?
Is there a simple way to test if my modem is working ?

Thanks for any help,


PS1: Like I don't find docs on this subjet (only messages), I'll
very happy to make one or include one in a FAQ. (But I have to 
understand what to do)

PS2: I got some other errors with ppp when it runs with a normal
user. But It's less important, it's just permissions problems.

PS3: Thanks for your work, the GNU/Hurd is very amazing!
