HELP: RedHat 5.0 & PPP 'Dial-in' (routes problem)

Don't know if this will help but I had the exact same type problem; I fixed it
by tying the following command after the pppd connection was established.

route add default ppp0

works like a champ now. BTW: I'm running Slackware 3.4 with pppd 2.2

Hope this helps.


1. HELP: RedHat 5.0 & PPP 'Dial-in' (routes problem)

Hi all!  let me first say that I had been running a ppp dial-in line on
redhat 4.2 for a while without running into this problem before.  But
ever since I upgraded to RH 5.0, I had been having problems with ppp0
routes.  For some odd reason, I cann't seem to be able to ping/connect
to any machines other than the one pppd is running on - this is really a
headache.  I checked redhat's errata on rh5.0 and downloaded the patch
(new rpm ppp package) they have over there, but that didn't help
either.  Anybody out there had similiar problem?  Any suggestions?
Helpful hints?  TIA!
