thanks ... that's what it is set to.
 the dial up connection gets a DHCP address from the network, with full
local DNS servers etc which is why i'm puzzled that it doesn't work.
 i'll mock up a test with my laptop to see if it works here ... it might be
something on the laptop blocking the connection.
