He means, as did I, that there should be no explicit 'default gateway' set
for the box. It is going to get that from PPP remember ? Which might change
depending on what modem he dials into. So you dont set a gateway on the box.
For the internal machines it *is* the gateway, and then it gets the upstream
default gateway dynamicly.

Yes, it would be nice, wouldnt it ?
