Thanks for the reply. I tried adding "defaulroute" to the /etc/ppp/options
file, but got no joy. However I wrote a shell script in the root directory
with the following line:
"route add default ppp0"
and named it "addroute". Now when I connect to Esatclear, I log in as su and
"sh addroute" at the prompt. It works fine. I can then exit and continue on
as an ordinary user. It may not be the perfect solution but it works!
