Thanks...that worked.  I just found ip-up/ip-down in the pppd man page, but
I guess that is not what I was really after for running something after a
userland connection comes up.

Hi Marco,
It works fine for me.
But my file name is ppp.linkup, according to man ppp
and I used the following way

MakHine# cat ppp.linkup
 !bg sh -c "sleep 75;/usr/local/bin/noip2 -U 59"
