You probably find that it's not routing the whole network via the dialup
Other words your dial up device only sees X.X.143.YY which is the dial up
in your ip-up.local , try detecting that dial up connection and route the
network through it..
route add -net X.X.143.0/24 gw $5 # (or was it $6)..
I'd firstly add the route manually and see if that fixes it..

Subject: [SLUG] routing
At work I have my Linux laptop on the network with a static IP
When I dial-in I am given another IP address
Most things work, PROXY for websurfing, DNS, but if I wan't to access my
email thorugh sylpheed, or ping the mail server
X.X.104.13 it always trys to connect through eth0 (X.X.105.30).
If I ifdown eth0 then it only uses ppp0, which is fine unless I want to
access something via eth0.
What IPTABLES or route commands would I need to use to enable it to use ppp0
as the interface that it connects through instead ?
I have the same problem, if I use my home box for internet connection
sharing from Win 2000, via a network crossover cable to my laptop. This
uses 192.168.0.1 for the Win 2K and an IP alias on my laptop 192.168.0.4 on
Obviously I can't ifdown eth0 as I lose all connectivity.
