I had a problem similar to that on my redhat computer at one time. The
problem appeared to be that when the IP changes as you reconnect, the
firewall script must be run again to get your masquerading back. This was a
long time ago, I think that I had to put the command in /etc/ppp/ip-
I use firestarter now and they do use a command like that:
[ohmster@ohmster ppp]$ cat ip-up.local
sh /etc/firestarter/firestarter.sh start
In you case, it would probably be "restart" and use the name of your
firewall instead of firestarter. Firestarter should do this for you, if you
want to try it out. Very easy to use. More info if you want to see:
