PPP over ssh: no need for IPs on client side

The dialout module was requesting the client to provide both IP numbers (locale and remote). This was not needed. So the check was removed. The client can provide the IP numbers as an option in the few cases where providing them on the server is not practical.

pppdialin was not handling the proxyarp ppp option

There is now a check-box for proxyarp both in the pppdialin defaults and for each ppp accounts. The /usr/lib/linuxconf/lib/ppplogin script has been updated as well.

Providing the local IP for each PPP acccount

The pppdialin module has been enhanced to allow a different local IP number for each PPP account if needed. Originally, the local IP was only configurable in the default screen. You can still set it there, but you can override it for specific PPP accounts.
