I have been trying to setup PPP so that I can login to my service provider
with the linux box then log into the linux box with my macintosh using

type in the IP number. The Mac eventually fails saying that no DNS answered
the query. The linux box has no problem telneting or pinging anywhere.

I am hoping it is something simple like a route command or two that can be
automated with a shell script.
I hope I explained this well enough, it makes me wonder why i'm going to the
