Re: ip-up & ip-down

I was able to determine this by having another PC, running windows,
connected to the internet not being able to ping the resolved name.  I had
originally though, since I can't ping the box, and I didn't see any output,
the program wasn't being executed properly.  Turned out to be in fact true.

In the ip-up and up-down scripts, I had to switch directories in order for
the program to see its config file in the same directory - it doesn't use
any path or environment variables !!!!! Unfortunately, it doesn't say that
anywhere in the directions, which I followed too literally apparently :(

So, in ip-down for example, I ended up with the following:

cd /usr/local/bin
dynipclient -k
cd /etc/ppp

And viola, I'm all set :)

Thanks for your help and support everyone!
