    Looks like the route is not set correctly (given the error message) Look at the route table: # /sbin/route Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway

      Looks like the route is not set correctly (given the error message)

      Look at the route table:

      # /sbin/route
      Kernel IP routing table
      Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use
      Iface
      192.168.0.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0
      eth0
      127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0
      lo
      default firewall.farlie 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0
      eth0

      The line of interest is the line for default. Yours is probably, like
      mine, refering to eth0. That is not what you want.

      ifconfig will give you the interface name for the pppd device.

      # route del default
      # route add default netmask 0.0.0.0 <put your pppd device here>
