	I've got a silly question, well, asking to make sure I've got the
correct info...
I have 1.4.2 as an ADSL firewall, with DHCP from my ISP. Now, I want to run
a little binary to update a URL redirection service (CJB.Net). I've tried to
put the stuff into /etc/ppp/ip-up like this:

/CJB-IpForwarder/cjbclient <username> <password>

Yes, just that one line. But when I start the connection, (adsl-start), I
get the error "invalid argument" for ip-up. Looking around through the
archives, I found a couple ip-up scripts. So, according to those, I should
have this:

#  ip-up
/CJB-IpForwarder/cjbclient <username> <password>

and this for /etc/ppp/ip-down, to pass an offline URL to redirect to (5 MB
space provided by my ISP):

#  ip-down
/CJB-IpForwarder/cjbclient <username> <password> <offline url>

Is this correct? Or did I goof up again?
