Thanks for your help.

Would you happen to know if setting up the FreeBSD box as a DNS server would allow network browsing over the PPP link???

I have no idea how to bimap a broadcast address along subnets!!! But that is something I'm gonna have to learn! I only have one subnet, so I'm not sure that'll work in this case.

Thanks again.

That is true. You'd need at least one server at each subnet.
But once I did a ugly hack to make it working: I bimapped broadcast addresses
along the subnets. As far as I can remember this worked, but it was just for
fun, I never used it. Also prividing a WINS at SAMBA and using that on the
ppp link was usefull but that was long ago (WinNT WinCE and Samba 1)
