ppp -auto my_provider

could you help me, please? (I have FreeBSD 5.3)

this question:

Why does ppp(8) dial for no reason in -auto mode?

I used the following line for log-file:

set log tcp/ip

/var/log/ppp.log includes next text:

Feb  1 10:24:04 fatal ppp[894]: Phase: Using interface: tun0
Feb  1 10:24:04 fatal ppp[894]: Phase: deflink: Created in closed state
Feb  1 10:24:04 fatal ppp[895]: TCP/IP: OUT <0>: fe80::2c0:26ff:fea4:b6b0 ---> ff02::1:ffa4:b6b0 (72)
Feb  1 10:24:04 fatal ppp[895]: TCP/IP: OUT ICMP: :::135 ---> ff02::1:ffa4:b6b0 (16/64)

(I install FreeBSD 5.3 from mini-install disk and I do not have samba)

also I used next:
  set filter dial 1 deny udp src eq 53
  set filter dial 2 deny udp dst eq 53
  set filter dial 3 permit 0/0 0/0


and I killed sendmail, typing killall sendmail

These ways did not help me :(

What do I need to do to solve a problem?

When ppp begins to dualup 'netstat -rn' outputs next:
Destination                       Gateway                       Flags      Netif Expire

fe80::1%lo0                       link#3                        UHL         lo0
ff01::/32                         ::1                           U           lo0
ff02::%rl0/32                     link#1                        UC          rl0
ff02::%lo0/32                     ::1                           UC          lo0
ff02::%tun0/32                    fe80::2c0:26ff:fea4:b6b0%tun0 UC         tun0

this string adds when 'ppp -auto my_provider' dialups:

ff02::%tun0/32                    fe80::2c0:26ff:fea4:b6b0%tun0 UC         tun0
