I think this IP is got automatically. Look at these messages that appear when I am connecting (I am using 2 scripts: to connect ppp-on and ppp-off to disconnect via ppp) :
bash: ppp-on: command not found
root@localhost:/home/adagilson# ppp-on
root@localhost:/home/adagilson# Serial connection established.
Using interface ppp0
Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/modem
local IP address
remote IP address
ppp link to [ppp0] terminated:
Demand dialing stopped.

Should I use "remote IP address as DNS"?

Thanks for helping, Purple and C. Hamel!
Consider that I am *not* using a DNS server, but a dial-up connection. I
have never needed to set DNS to access internet whether on Windows or
Linux. Some more ideas?

You need a DNS regardless of the method you use to connect to the internet.
You are almost certainly getting your IP address set automatically via dhcp from your ISP. dhcp *can* also set up your DNS IP address(es) automatically but this depends on how things are configured.

You need to either configure your system to get DNS IP addresses via dhcp or define them yourself.
