I don't know if that's such a good idea...How tight is your security?

  Since the ip-down script run *after* the link goes down, you obviously
  can't put the script there. I have something similar, so I can ftp
  files to/from my machine at work. I wrote wrapper scripts around pon
  and use a cron job's to automatically start and stop the links during
  business hours. You'll probably want a wrapper script to ftp that
  you're no longer online that *waits* for the job to finish and then
  brings down the connection.
