I set up two modems on a different networks. On the dialin server I created the user ppp with ppplogin script as his shell. Everything works fine except the command I implemented in ppplogin script: "route add -net ???.???.???.??? gw ???.???.???.???" never executes.
When I telnet from a comp that dials the modem and issue route command I am able to telnet from one network to the other. Is there any solution to this?

I know if you don't type the command exactly as route likes it, it will ignore it.  Try:
route add -net xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx netmask 255.255.255.255.0 gw xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Or whatever your correct netmask is.
Also check your routes with the route command after entering them to be sure it worked.  I think the command is "route -a".

Are you putting the full path to the route binary? I believe its:

/sbin/route add -net etc...

Also, make sure this script is owned by root.

I appologize for typing mistake my command is as follows : "/sbin/route add -net ???.???.???.??? netmask 255.255.255.0 gw ???.???.???.???" I am sure there is a problem with the ppp user. I have also issue "chmod +s /sbin/route" to give the process a root privilege, but it doesnt work (just with ppp user that has ppplogin script as his shell).

I think they've pretty much summed it all up make sure you're using the full path to the route command that is what I also thinkmis the problem
make sure you have no misspellings in your command

Try putting the command in the /etc/ppp/ip-up script.  Something like:

if [ "$5" = "128.1.2.2" ] ; then
        route add -net 128.1.2.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 dev $1

where 128.1.2.2 is the number you're giving the dialing-in machine, and dev $1 will be replaced with ppp0 or whatever number the ppp device is automagically assigned.  This script executes with pppd's privileges and works with the default permissions on my RedHat distribution.
