Thanks much for that advice sigsegv, I did figure out a way to get around the problem. If I enclose the interface which is described in pf's ruleset withing "( )" brackets then it makes refrence to the interface rather than search for the ip.... According to pf this is used for DHCP or dial up where the puter has no static address. I was able to apply the same idea to PPPoE thus I made refrence to the interface, and when all the necessary connections were made it used the ip. So that pretty much solved the problem. But, really appreacitate the help. Thanks
