Description Georg Baumann 2001-10-28 18:29:31 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.7-10 i686)

Description of problem:
my ippp0 device connects to our office network; however
I have a DSL connection which I want to use as default
gateway. when using the ifup-ippp for starting and stopping
the ISDN connection, then the default route is always
modified because of:

>     options="$options defaultroute"

my solution, I have changed this to:
<     if [ "$DIALMODE" = "auto" ]; then
<       options="$options -defaultroute"
<     else
<       options="$options defaultroute"
<     fi

for non-dial-on-demand situations where you still want the default route set.
