ok, thanks.

okay, here's what i have for the ppp0:

ppp0    Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
        inet addr:(my IP)   P-t-P:(ISP's IP) Mask:
        RX: packets:(at the time it was 128)
        TX: packets: (at the time it was lower than 50)
        collisions:0 txqueuelen:10

that's what i copied from the screen. except for the RX and TX (it was all 0
or low numbers, i had just started the connection), the IPs, that's exactly
what there was. i didn't think of doing route -n (wasn't installed). i'll
install that tonight and post that up when i run the diagnostic.

BTW, anyone care to tell me how to output screen output to a file, so i
don't use so much paper? then i can cut and paste this stuff when i'm on the
mac side.

Thanks again,
