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
vr0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500

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.
