Re: kppp problem
Still no luck with DNS on kppp:

I guess no RedHat SuperGurus have read this?
I did add the line "alias ppp0 ppp_generic" to /etc/modules.conf, and that got rid of the modprobe error, but now I get a message that looks like this:
Couldn't find interface ppp0: No such device
Kernel supports ppp alright.

That line is present.

When I run nslookup with no args, it hangs. I have checked both /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/ppp/resolve.conf and they are both correct.

Here's what is shows:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
126.96.36.199 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 ppp0
127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
0.0.0.0 188.8.131.52 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 ppp0
I can't remember if I mentioned it, but this is a straight-forth out of the box installation of Redhat 7.1. I haven't touched anything yet; getting this to work is my first priority.
