this definitely looks like an issue of your default route. if you do a `netstat -rn` your default
route should be that of the one indicated in your pppd remote IP. if it is not, your machine will not
be sending packets it can't route itself to the correct gateway. i would imagine the pppd should set
the correct default route for you upon connection.
I used asppp from sun and got dialup to work. it was a *REAL* pain. I got it to connect after many
hours of struggling, but if i ever dropped the link i had to reboot the machine to get the correct
default gateway in the routing table (netstat -rn). i tried flushing the table and reconnecting but
it seemed like only the FIRST time i connected would the correct default route get set. so i have
felt your dialup pain ;) i came the conclusion that Suns are just not made for dialup, their real
home is on a LAN.
if you `man route` you can prob figure out how to set the default route by hand (once you have
connected and gotten the remote IP). i can't remember the syntax off of the top of my head.
looking over your logs below your ifconfig and messages ppplog seem a bit out of sync, where these
snipped from two different sessions?
: ppp0: flags=8d1<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,NOARP,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
: inet 188.8.131.52 --> 184.108.40.206 netmask ffffff00
: May 30 17:24:15 baldeagle pppd: local IP address 220.127.116.11
: May 30 17:24:15 baldeagle pppd: remote IP address 18.104.22.168
the local and remote IP of the ppp0 interface and that of the log are different.
