OK, I've searched and searched and am really stumped on this one.


SERVER - Personal FreeBSD 2.2.2 machine with a 3c509 net card connected to
the internet
running pppd.  Below are my /etc/ppp/options and /etc/ppp/options.ttyd1 files:



GATEWAY=YES option in /etc/rc.conf enabled


CLIENT #1 - Windows NT Workstation 4.0
   I can setup NT and dial into my FreeBSD box and connect to the net via
PPP with
no problems at all.  Routing and everything seems to be okay as I can FTP,

CLIENT #2 - FreeBSD 2.2.2
   This is where I run into a problem.  I'm using iijppp to connect to my
machine running pppd.  I dial and connect, and the prompt changes from ppp
to PPP,
so it looks as if I have connected with PPP.  Now, if I'm running "routed"
on the
server (NOT THE CLIENT), I see a message like "punt:  RTM_ADD_GATEWAY
unable to add"
or something.  Figuring there may be a problem, I disabled routed (I've
tried gated too)
on the server.  Neither routed or gated are running on the client.  If I
have a 
route like:   BLAH BLAH BLAH
I can ping which makes sense.  Without it, I can't ping it
which also
makes sense.  The default route is setup to be  In
addition, there is
a route from to  Everything makes since to
me as far
as that goes.  The problem is that I cannot connect to anything outside of
my machine.
I try pinging and no response.  In addition, I try pinging a
such as (a server where I work which I know is up) and also
get no response.
Below are my ppp.conf and ppp.linkup files.  I really have no idea what's
going on
and have spent quite a few hours on this one.  Any help or suggestions
would be greatly
