KPPP not working


Ok, my problem is that kppp is not working, I try to use it in KDE 3.3 and it acts like it's going to start, then it disappears. KPPP does work on knoppix 3.7 so, I do know that it can work. I do have pppd installed, and
Quote:
apt-get install kppp
is supposed to take care of all dependencies.
Any thoughts?

I've never used kppp, but instead have always just run pppconfig as root, and then used pon and poff (also as root) to connect and disconnect.

pppconfig may alter settings that were set up with kppp -- dunno.

Just to be clear: you've got to run the 'pppconfig' command (as root) from a terminal window, and answer all of its questions before you can use the pon or poff commands.

I don't recall if pppconfig comes installed by default, but if it doesn't, you need to install it:

# apt-get install pppconfig

When you run pppconfig, like it tells you, if you just use the default name 'provider' instead of 'earthlink', then you can simply type 'pon' to connect.

If you use the name 'earthlink' instead of 'provider', then to connect you need to type 'pon earthlink'.

I'm guessing, in either case, to disconnect you just type 'poff'.
