Um, just how are you starting up ppp? If it's being done with a
script, you might try using the "ipparam" option for pppd to pass
another parameter to /etc/ip-up. You'd probably want to be very
careful security-wise if you did this, though, to make certain that
malicious things couldn't be passed in via ipparam.
