I have just read all the chapter #18 of the handbook, but I haven't 
found anything about the ip-up script. On the contrary the PPPD(8) man 
page claims that the /etc/ppp/ip-up is executed when the link is 
available for sending and receiving IP packets. My link becomes 
available for sending/receiving IP packets, but ip-up is never 
executed. Any ideas why?

By the way, I am using kernel PPP, (on ppp0) if it makes any difference.

Thanks for responding
