It seems like i gotten the problem fixed. The problem was that the MTU
on my netcard was higher than the MTU on the tun0 interface. It also
helped a bit to turn media:auto to 10Base/UTP

Thanks anyway :)

I've run ppp -nat for a long time with multiple machines using cvsup and

never had a problem.  Currently I am using a dual p-100 with 32 megs of
that runs ppp and natd and ipfw.  But I have used the same hardware with

built-in ppp nat and had fine results.
