Thanks for the tip. I got everything set up on my laptop and it works
fine here. I can see in the terminal that all looks good. I of course
use the same scripts to connect.

If I try to open a page with opera I get network error instantly. Does
the DummyIAP trick not work anymore or am I doing something wrong?
