I use a linux (Mandrake 7.0) as a up server. I’ll assume you have a network setup and working.

First I create a file called
rc.firewall

/sbin/depmod -a
echo -n "Starting Firewall Script"

echo "1" >/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_dynaddr

ipchains -M -S 7200 10 60

/sbin/modprode ip_masq_ftp
/sbin/modprode ip_masq_raudio
/sbin/modprode ip_masq_irc

ipchains -P forward DENY

ipchains -A forward -s 10.8.11.0/24 -j MASQ

I saved this in my rc.d directory

Then edit /etc/ppp/options file

demand
idle 1800
ipcp-accept-remote
ipcp-accept-local
lock
noauth
defaultroute
user “Your User Name”
remotename “Your ISP”
/dev/modem 115200 crtscts
connect '/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/chat-ppp0'




then edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts chat-ppp0

'ABORT' 'BUSY'
'ABORT' 'ERROR'
'ABORT' 'NO CARRIER'
'ABORT' 'NO DIALTONE'
'ABORT' 'Invalid Login'
'ABORT' 'Login incorrect'
'' 'ATZ'
'OK' 'ATDTyourispphone#
'CONNECT' ''
'ogin:' 'your login'
'ord:' 'your password'

next edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0
PERSIST=yes
DEFROUTE=yes
ONBOOT=no
INITSTRING=ATZ
MODEMPORT=/dev/modem
LINESPEED=115200
ESCAPECHARS=no
DEFABORT=yes
HARDFLOWCTL=yes
DEVICE=ppp0
PPPOPTIONS=
DEBUG=no
PAPNAME=
REMIP=
IPADDR=
BOOTPROTO=none
MTU=
MRU=
DISCONNECTTIMEOUT=
RETRYTIMEOUT=
USERCTL=no

Now add these two line to the end of  your /etc/rc.d/rc.local file

/etc/rc.d/rc.firewall
/usr/sbin/pppd :10.0.0.2

reboot and your system should dial on damand.
