OK, if ppp0 goes down (dialup you know) and I restart it, it seems like I have to bring down the firewall and restart it. Is this normally necessary, or am I doing something wrong?

This is accomplished automatically by the /etc/ppp/ip-up script

OK, I'm confused by ip-up (I'm not very good at bash). I've been using a simple shell/chat script for years. Are there some easy commands that I can just plug in?

I looked at the rc startup stuff and there are so many firewall scripts that I don't know what to pick from.
