i'm currently connecting to the net via an rcn cable modem, and having
no trouble.  as i'm going on vacation for a week or so, i am trying to
set up a ppp connection, using pretty much the scripts given in the
rcn linux reference on the net.  the scripts seem to work ok in that
i get remote and local ip addresses shown in /var/log messages, and
ifconfig shows ppp0 up and running.  BUT when i attempt to do anything,
such a ping or telnet into some host, i get these peculiar DENY messages
in /var/log/messages.  AND nothing works.

what have i missed?
