Thanks again for the update. Buying a SAIX local account for access to the SAIX News server is indeed quite tempting. It's very cool what you have done and I think you should go on with it. Perhaps add that extra facility for the third pppoe (SAIX local, etc). I don't know to much about programming, so I can't really gauge how difficult all of this is, but thanks again for your effort thus far.R19/gb on SAIX vs R2/gb on IS is still a large disincentive to using the SAIX newserver. I don't think anyone is going to use it to the same extent as IS. But you can at least update newsgroups on the fly. With IS you can wait hours while it crawls...
That's another good reason to incorporate SAIX local and gaming accounts into the script. If you used a SAIX local account with the existing script, you would have to remove these three lines
BTW: Which router model and version are you using?Code:
# add SAIX mail and news to intl /sbin/route add -host 22.214.171.124 ppp1 /sbin/route add -host 126.96.36.199 ppp1
Even as it is though, the script and router achieves efficiently that which for many is quite a convoluted mess of setups so as to cater for our sad situation here in SA. I will keep testing it and give any feedback you may require. My model says this: Linksys WRT54G/GL/GS. Not sure if that is helping... My version says: DD-WRT v23 SP2 (09/15/06) vpn - build 3932. Thanks again.
