Here is my 2 year old ppp.conf - which has worked with 3 different ISPs;
set log Phase Chat IPCP CCP tun command
set device "!/usr/sbin/pppoe -i tl0"
set reconnect 5 180000
disable acfcomp protocomp
set mtu max 1492
set mru max 1492
set speed sync
set lqrperiod 100
set cd 5
set timeout 0
set authname "email@example.com"
set authkey "passwordthingo"
add! default HISADDR
messages will be in /var/log/daemon *not* /var/log/messages.
Not sure about your IP address issues, how many physical interfaces (eg
network cards) does your firewall have ?
