I have been trying to set up IP masquerading for my home lan. For the
most part, it is going quite well. I am having trouble, however, when
I reconnect. I manually connect, my modem negotiates, I log in, my
firewall goes up and I'm set. Eight hours later when my ISP
disconnects me is when the problems start. I'm using the "persist"
option for pppd. When I turn "persist" off and manually reconnect,
everything works fine: modem negotiates, logs in, firewall starts, lan
has access. However, when I allow pppd to reconnect itself: modem
negotiates, logs in, firewall starts, lan has no access. I just can't
seem to figure out what's going on. I'm sorry for not attach my shell
scripts for connecting, I don't have them on my at the moment. Any
help would be appreciated. Thanks.
