Thanks for the reply, I was beginning to feel ignored. And thinking
of the other lists. In any event, yes, I can ping the PPP peer (numerically), but not anybody else. I have been wondering about
default route, but I don't know what to do about it. If you could
provide some advice on that, I would most appreciate it. Also, one
further bit of info: lynx gives me a message "lynx: Can't access
startfile http://www.snet.net" (my IP). Thanks again.
