No, it won't... rc.conf take precedence...

If you have a defaultrouter line in your rc.conf file,
it will still be there.

You must comment that line out, and then use the
add default HISADDR to your ppp.conf file.

Otherwise you will get a warning message
Warning: default route already exists (or something of that nature).

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.

I worry about my child and the Internet all the time, even though she's
too young to have logged on yet. Here's what I worry about. I worry
that 10 or 15 years from now, she will come to me and say "Daddy, where
were you when they took freedom of the press away from the Internet?"
