Yes, that's what I though. Isn't this IP reserved?
Indeed the PtP is my default route, and the gateway IP is the one that my ISP
sends at the beginning of the connection.

Here is my routing table:
montblanc:/home/pep # netstat -nr
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt Iface

I've been using the smppd since 8.0 and never had a problem before. What's so
wrong with it?
