Routing fails, of course.

Does anyone recognize the problem or have a suggestion? Can anyone explain the complaint
about the pass-filter?

If you have a line in ppp.conf that looks like:

	add default HISADDR

... try changing it to:

	add! default HISADDR

This will force PPP to overwrite whatever currently configured default route that you have.
