In the continuing saga of my firewall configuration...
One kind member of this list suggested I must compile this into my
So I did that, and it made a difference though it didn't solve the
problem. Previously, whenever I started ppp, if I attempted to ping I
would get this error message:
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:~> ping slashdot.org
ping: cannot resolve slashdot.org: Host name lookup failure
Now when I ping, I get no response - no error messages, but no other
feedback. I think this is an improvement, but something is still
preventing me from getting a response from ppp.

# set these to your inside interface network and netmask and ip
CONTENT OF /etc/hosts:
::1 localhost localhost.utopia.com
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.utopia.com
192.168.0.3 ibm.utopia.com ibm
192.168.0.2 sonic.utopia.com sonic
192.168.0.1 pro.utopia.com pro
I also used sysinstall to designate this machine as a gateway. Was that
the right thing to do?
thanks for all the advice so far,
