I don't know where the last poster got his info, but it's all wrong.
User ppp is used for ADSL connection all the time. You yourself have
proved it works by what you have working all ready. User ppp will
automatically keep the last assigned ip address of the interface,
tun0, when it loses it's connection ifconfig will display your
interfaces. You should see more than one ip address on tun0. Add
this to your cncom section of ppp.conf.
disable iface-alias # Stop adding old IP addr as alias when ppp
# redials because line was lost. These old
# showed using ifconfig -a on tun0.
iface clear # Remove all previous IP address
replace your add default 10.0.0.138 statement with this statement
add default HISADDR # Add a (sticky) default route (Mandatory)
try test again and if you still have problem then post
be sure to empty contents of log file before test so file only
contains msgs from just this test.

ppp is for calling in with a modum on a telefone network. It doesn't
work as a stand alone for a ADSL modum. There a couple of ports
for ADSL modums. (pptpclient is one) But is feel its better to have
something more independed. Can you modum be setup so it connects on
I have a PPTP connection over my ADSL modum. I've configured my
that it builds the connection and routes the packets though on
ip connection to my computer. It does take configuring of you
box this way.
Its proberbly best to go for something in bewain first like setting
modum up to be a nat router.
