PPP - almost there, but stuck on routing table :(
I have recently aquired a PPP-based ISP, in hopes to get linux
network connectivity. I have been working with the PPP howto, and
got PPP somewhat working.
I am stuck at the point where a "route -n" only shows ONE ppp0
connection, where the howto says it should show TWO. I am able
to ping the IP address of the remote machine OK. I am not able
to do anything else though. No default route "stuff" shows up, and
I'm wondering if the debian distribution sets up something that I
I am using a PCMCIA-based modem, connecting manually through minicom
and specifying my username and password. I then quit minicom leaving
the modem connected, and run "pppd -d -detach /dev/ttyS2 57600".
When I ran "pppconfig" it put the 2 DNS server numbers in OK, but
according to the howto, there should be a "domain ISP_DOMAIN_NAME"
line before them, and I don't know the name, or if it is needed.
I can post more info,, but I do not know where to start.
Anyone have any clues as to why the default route is not setup?
