I don't think that will do the job properly -- my ISP assigns me a
10.x.x.x address and my defaultroute is a NAT. My 'external' IP address
changes over time, and since I have no way of knowing what the address is
or when it changes, I don't think gif would work properly. Also, since my
IP address changes, I need some sort of authentication and PAP does the
trick with userppp.
