One thing you can do, for the time being, is make a 'dispatcher' script
that does this.  It's a small script that gets called whenever things
happen with the network, and in your case that's a great place to put
this.  The script gets called with the interface name that came up or
down, so you can just pop this command into a small script
in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d, and match against the interface
name starting with "ppp".  Note you'll want the IP_IFACE environment
variable from the script, not the actual interface name passed as a
command-line parameter to the script as $1.  Note that it won't *always*
be ppp0.  There's various information out there on creating dispatcher
scripts, and there may even be some already installed on your system.


Dan, thank you for the response.  I'll be reading more about what you
wrote and trying this out.  I'll respond with how it works out.

Thanks again, I had kinda given up on this and installed MS Windows
