Ok you must have a ppp that accepts -auto see man ppp.

and in the myip entry in the ppp.conf file.....
 set ifaddr 0 1.1.1/0
 add 0 0

this tells the ppp to accept any ip that the isp delivers..
and to add a default route to that ip.

the number I choose at random could be for example.

I use because it does not exists... (I guess).

In this manner......
ppp -auto alias myisp
will do the trick.
