If you can't ping an IP address then there is a problem unrelated to
DNS nameservers. What message is generated by ping when it fails
for 188.8.131.52? Does ping fail for 10.64.64.64?
It might simply be that there is no auto-magic setup for DNS by the
What does it mean "auto-magic setup"? I noticed that /etc/resolv.conf and
/etc/ppp/resolv.conf are automatically updated with the correct

They are related. But /etc/ppp/resolv.conf is updated by pppd and
/etc/resolv.conf is updated by the "auto-magic" of the distribution
(by using /etc/ppp/resolv.conf, or by using the environmental variables
DNS1, DNS2 that pppd makes available in the /etc/ppp/ip-up script).
The resolver only uses /etc/resolv.conf.

I don't think so, unless Debian modifies the standard pppd 2.4.4.
There is a lot involved in what you are doing that is not related to
PPP and with which I am not familiar. If you really believe the problem
is a PPP problem then you can add this line to /etc/syslog.conf
and then do "kill -HUP `pidof syslogd` to get syslogd to reread
syslog.conf. The log file produced during connection may be useful.
Thanks for your patience.
