inetd is the tcpwrapers stuff, so yes, it _can_ be used for running a

If this is the case I'm guessing you are using a pcmcia nic. Yes? If so
the script you should be looking at is /etc/init.d/pcmcia and have a
look at the files in /etc/pcmcia/, particularly
I don't know anything about pptp, (other than what came out of
"apt-cache show pptp-linux") so I can't give you any hints there.
What I can say is that I use my laptop with three different static IPs,
two very different DHCP servers and with ppp over a modem. I found
that the package "switchconf" handles changing the configurations like
a champ. So: apt-cache show switchconf.
