Check your /var/log/messages
If it say something about "pppd can't replace default route...." or
"can't exec /etc/ppp/ip-up: Exec format error" you should create the
BTW: If you get the "Exec format error" you allready have this file,
but the first line "#!/bin/sh" is probably missing.
In the file you should have :
/sbin/route add default gw $5
...plus whatever is present in the file allready.
the #!/bin/sh line is probably there allready, if you
have the file.
Chmod the file to 700.
Make sure you have one or more of your ISP's nameservers listed in
your /etc/resolv.conf, and check that /var/log/messages doesn't
contain more error-messages from pppd.
If everything is as stated above you should have a working ppp
connection (it works for me in RedHat 4.0).
If it still doesn't work, and you're using RH4.0, then mail me
and I'll mail you my scripts.
