According to the postings in the last time to ssh, I'll assume you have
something wrong with your dns setup.
Unless you are running your own nameserver I would add this to
Further more check your /etc/hosts to see if there are all internal
computers listed, so that the dns not tries to resolve internal
addresses. Also make sure /etc/resolv.conf contains "lookup file bind".
If all this doesn't help you may (but don't judge me for that if it
doesn't make sense) add to /etc/ppp/ppp.linkup
! sh "route delete default"
! sh "route flush"
Hope that helps
