Thanks, that was a good suggestion (to use the SIMPLE ruleset). However,
I'm still not getting through with PPP. Here is the output of ifconfig
when I'm online:

[EMAIL PROTECTED]:~> ifconfig
        inet6 fe80::20c:6eff:fe0a:ca02%vr0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1 
        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
        ether 00:0c:6e:0a:ca:02
        media: Ethernet autoselect (none)
        status: no carrier
lp0: flags=8810<POINTOPOINT,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 16384
        inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128 
        inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x3 
        inet netmask 0xff000000 
ppp0: flags=8051<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1524
        inet --> netmask 0xff000000 

AND the result of a ping:
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:~> ping slashdot.org
ping: cannot resolve slashdot.org: Host name lookup failure

This is my current configuration in /etc/rc.firewall:

        # set these to your outside interface network and netmask and ip

        # set these to your inside interface network and netmask and ip

Again, my internal (ethernet) network is accessible, but PPP is
completely dead to the world. When I remove the firewall, it works fine,
so it's not an issue of PPP incorrectly configured.

Hope somebody can help. Again, I confess that I don't know much about
writing firewall rules. All I really want is to use the default set of
rules called "simple".

Thanks to all who have replied.
