Problem: I can't connect to an internet provider using ppp solaris 2.5.1
         This Internet provider uses dinamic ip addressing.

Solution: Put in the /etc/ the line

          negotiate_address on

here is an example:


    ifconfig ipdptp0 plumb up
        interface ipdptp0
        inactivity_timeout 120
        peer_system_name isp
        negotiate_address on
