Probs dialing out using pppd and chat.

Hello,
I am running RedHat 6.1. I am connected to an intranet so the routing tables, default gateway et al are all set up. I finally managed to get the box to dial out and connect with my ISP but ip-up does not seem to be working because I cannot "surf"
right now all I do is call
"pppd call isp"
the file peers/isp calls a chat script which connects me to the ISP:
Once I am connected , the routing table shows the followign:
Destination    Gateway GenMask Flags Use Interface
192.168.1.1   *   255.255.255.255  UH   eth0
 206.48.27.63  *  255.255.255.255  UH   ppp0
192.168.1.0  *  255.255.255.0  U    eth0
127.0.0.0   *  255.0.0.0    U    lo
default   192.168.1.120  0.0.0.0    UG  eth0
default   192.168.1.120  0.0.0.0    UG  eth0
the second default has metric=1

When I try to  run ip-up to change the routing tables I get an error message:
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-post: ifcfg-: No such file or dir...

What did I miss?
Thanks,
Marcelo

You should try to run the initscript-update from Redhat.
AFAIK this is a bug in RH6.1

I think the problem lies with your DNS, make sure your ISP's  primary dns is added to your systems list of DNS's.
I used to suffer alot with ppp, but since RH6.1 and the very user friendly dial-up config tool, my problems are a thing of the past.

The problem is not with the DNS because I cannot PING the DNS.
The problem lies in the routing tables. Just can't figure out how to change it using ip-up

Wait a minute.....you can't ping the DNS servers?  No ping...No Access...unless you are behind a proxy that filters ICMP...but you don't mention that.  For your ppp interface make sure you are using DHCP and add your DNS servers address to you DNS server list.

The REDhat-updates are here:

ftp://sunsite.uio.no/pub/unix/linux/redhat-updates/6.1/i386/

If you have never seen that site before, there is probably lots of other stuff there you should upgrade too. eg PPP.
