Dns is set up by ppp "set dns"

Nat option was given at the ppp command line "nat enable yes" prior to
manual dialing. default route was set up in ppp.conf using the handbook
In /etc/rc.conf you should have:
> ppp_enable="NO"
> ppp_mode="auto"
> ppp_nat="YES"
> ppp_profile="whatever-yours-is-called" "papchap"
In my /etc/defaults/rc.conf I have these +
