Hello !

If i configure ISDN to connect automatically to my provider/company i got the following problem:

If i open netscape(or telnet,...) and type an URL in the internet the connection is established automatically. But i got an error message by the application first (netscape, telnet) that i have no connection.  

Then the isdn-connection is on (after 3 seconds).

Then, if i click the second time 1-2 seconds later the application will work properly !

How can i solve this little Problem ?

You must make the default route before logging in. If you use this line: 'route add default dev ippp0' after using 'ifup ippp0' you should get what you want. Also use that line in one of the scripts that get run when downing the line./etc/ppp/if-down.local .

Experiment a little and ask again if it doesn't work

I have set the default route and it works -- before.

Everything is fine; but see:

1. e.g. netscape www.yahoo.com
2. isdn tells me that its dailin
3. error message of netscape; no networkconn.
4. isdn is connectet
5. i type www.yahoo.com again
6. eyerything is fine

How do i get loss of no. 3 ?

Try removing the defaultroute-parameter in your script.

BTW,  could you give us the printout of ping <somehost>?

It might be interesting for you to look at some kind of proxy-program. I use wwwoffle and think it is great.
