I have this situation.  I just modified 'simplesite' and left the 
defaults as they are.  Unfortunately, it appears that 'ppp.linkup' isn't 
functioning...I have a bunch of annoying routes and try to delete them 
wiht it and nothing happens.  I end up su'ing to root, running a script 
to delete them, then adding a default route for the connection.  For 
example, this is what I get just after connecting:

gdi# netstat -rn
Routing tables

Internet:
Destination      Gateway            Flags     Refs     Use     Netif Expire
127.0.0.1        127.0.0.1          UH          1        0       lo0
128.223.150.166  128.223.150.182    UH          6        0      tun0

So I enter 'route add default 128.223.150.166' and all is well.

When I do 'close' in ppp, it deletes the default route just fine.
