15 Well, I use ppp and the comand pon and poff. It works pretty well.
16 emerge ppp and then config with pppconfig. To connect, pon, to
17 disconnect, poff. That would be as root, there should be a way to make
18 users do it though. I'm not sure how.
20 Now wvdial, it dials out, then sits for a minute, then disconnects with
21 the error that my password is wrong, which is crap because it is
22 correct. I only got wvdial to work once on another rig. It has never
23 worked on this one though. Anybody have a clue on that one? I just
24 like to have options in case it pours instead of just a little shower.
26 My $.02 and a question as well.
