    i am using the following rules:

    -iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i ppp0 -s -j DROP
    -iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o ppp0 -d -j DROP

    Do you think that these rules meet the requirements and in case they do not i apply yours.
    I have also disabled RIP in my router since it's not the gateway to Internet.

    >(similarly for other non-routable networks).
