Any tips for configuring a FreeBSD system (hostname/DNS/resolver/PPP)
with two interfaces (PPP to ISP/dynamic address allocation and local
Ethernet) ?
Hosts on the ethernet (RFC 1597 addressing) access the net via Socks5 
running on the FreeBSD system (this part is working well)
I'm running into issues like what should my hostname be (part of the ISP
domain, or part of some local domain), whether to use pppd or iijppp
(like to have socks initiate demand dialing but don't want named startup
to cause iijppp to demand dial) etc etc.
Would appreciate tips, pointers from someone who has done similar.
