Avoid creating PPTP default routes
Authored by: tfield1974 on Feb 06, '04 01:11:39PM

This is a great tip (especially iwth the ip-up/ip-down addition). However, for some reason I am unable to get my route add statement to be recognized, so I'm basically blocked out of my work network (10.128). As a result, I have to figure out what my remote IP is and manually add the route myself - which seems to not really be the point.

Here's my ip-up:

# /etc/ppp/ip-up
route add -net 10.128 $IPREMOTE
cp /etc/resolv.conf /etc/
echo nameserver $DNS1 > /etc/resolv.conf
echo nameserver >> /etc/resolv.conf
echo nameserver $DNS2 >> /etc/resolv.conf

Here's what I use to manually add the route statement:
sudo route add -net 10.128 my.remote.ip.address

Any suggestions?
