I think a lot of people will be interested if somebody
the script he/she is using for authentication in case of a dial up
connection (along with instructions on how to modify it, of course).
For the love of St. Ignucius, when was the last time that people actually
visited the directory called /usr/doc or /usr/share/doc? pppd by itself
has such powerful ways of dialing up an internet link using chat scripts
and files under /etc/pppd/ (or something similar) ...
The pppd documentation itself and the PPP-Howto itself provide such
excellent sample scripts, that Windoze style utils such as kppp, wvdial
pale in front of the functions possible using pppd itself.
People should read these things and the manpages to figure out things like
"peers" and "call" thingies that pppd uses. Once setup correctly, all
havet to do is say "pppd call isp-name" then sit back and simply start
using the net. Then you can think of a lot of wizardry like if-up and
if-down scripts. And "correctly setup" simply means copying the sample
scripts to the correct location and hack them up for your own use!
Read The F Manual, I say!!!!!! Puhlease!!!!
