man ppp

Ein einfacher Blick in die ppp(8) Handbuchseite haette

     If the /etc/ppp/ppp.linkup file is available, its contents are executed
     when the PPP connection is established. See the provided ``pmdemand''
     example in /usr/share/examples/ppp/ppp.conf.sample which runs a script in
     the background after the connection is established (refer to the
     ``shell'' and ``bg'' commands below for a description of possible substi-
     tution strings). Similarly, when a connection is closed, the contents of
     the /etc/ppp/ppp.linkdown file are executed. Both of these files have
     the same format as /etc/ppp/ppp.conf.

Falls tatsaechlich pppd(8) zum Einsatz kommt, sollte man
in der zugehoerigen Man-Page nach "ip-up" suchen:

     A program or script which is executed when the link is available
     for sending and receiving IP packets (that is, IPCP has come
     up). It is executed with the parameters
     interface-name tty-device speed local-IP-address remote-IP-
     address ipparam
