Well, I'd like to thank you for pointing that out, I think it might depend 
on what security measures are being taken on your internet server though.
I've asked if it would be a problem where I'm at, but even before I saw
your message I was planning on moving the details into the config files 

I'd also like to thank John, his advice helped me make a lot of progress 
as well.

Currently I can get the ppp connection established and ping the local
and remote addresses.  I put the remote hostname and domain into
/etc/hosts with the address, and now I can telnet to the remote 
host.  I have access to the names and addresses of the name server
and news server etc... but at this point I'm at a loss, I can't figure
out what to do with this stuff to get my local software set up.

What's next?
