I'm trying to get a new laptop set up for a quick out of town trip.

Can anyone help me with the ppp.conf syntax to clear/replace an existing
default rout for the duration of a ppp linkup?

That is, the machine starts off with a default route, which I want to
delete and replace with the ppp route for the duration of the conection.
Then I wnat to put the orignal route back.


Please forgive me if I'm saying something you already know.

The default ppp.conf file has a line:
add default HISADDR
Which should do what you want.
I'm not 100% sure that this will actually "delete" a previous route.

That's the issue. It will not. Yo get an error message about route
already existing.

Acording to the ppp.conf man page the line
 delete default
 delete ALL

_should work, but I'm having troubel getting them to work for me.

Hmmm ... it's been a while, but ...

Doesn't ppp have a scripting interface?  If so, you should be able to run
a script that does 'route delete default'?

Just thinking out loud.
