Linux Networking question

 I've recently upgraded from Red Hat 4.1 to 4.2. When I
try to manually connect to my ISP by using DIP I can not
get it to set the default routing like it used to under
4.1. BTW, I do not have any other default routes configured. The process looks like this:

  DIP>port /dev/ttyS1
  DIP>dial 555-5555
  DIP>term

   {manually authenticate for PPP with my ISP (dynamic IP)}

  DIP>default
  DIP>mode PPP

Back at my shell prompt I can see the pppd daemon
running with defaultroute but the route does not show
up in my routing table.

Like I said, this worked under 4.1 so the best guess is
the 4.2 configuration is different somehow. Any suggestions?

I think the new version uses ARP routing thus it won't show up in your netstat -r. However if yiu look at your arp routing it will be there.

I gather that the connection is working so it means that the defaultroute is in your arp routing thus making your computer work.
