AW: pppd problem...
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use
126.96.36.199 * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 ppp0
192.168.0.2 * 255.255.255.255 UH 1 0 0 tap0
default * 0.0.0.0 U 1 0 0 tap0
My isp requires the email address as the login name. That works under
In pppconfig I set it to dynamically set the DNS server which I guess it's
doing because I'm getting the lines
Mar 1 18:58:38 k6 pppd: primary DNS address 188.8.131.52
Mar 1 18:58:38 k6 pppd: secondary DNS address 184.108.40.206
in my script. Or am I mistaken here?
