Re: PPP Configuration: Getting Hooked Up to my ISP

Status: Stage 2:  Further along, running into DNS issues

Thanks for the suggestions thus far:
  I had a shell script which didn't have the correct 'executable'
permissions. Something like rw-rw-rw instead of chmod 777

Here is how far I have progressed:
1. Executing pppd now dials out (I never got this far in Stage 1 becaues a
script file did not have execute
    permissions hence it was unable to call chat())
2. Logging into the ISP successfully
3. PAP authentication works fine
4. I can ping the ISP's gateway machine.

5. I cannot ping anything that is not localhost or the gateway (see below)
    Ex. 'ping sunsite.unc.edu'

6. DNS configuration does not seem configured properly. I am inferring this
    comparing my output of ifconfig() and route () with the output example
in the
    PPP-HOWTO document.

# pppd&   <--- Logs in fine and the connection is up.
