kppp doesn't assign default route to ppp0
Can anyone help me with an annoying dial-up problem, please?
I've installed RedHat 8.0 onto a PC with a modem and an ethernet card (the nic connects to a Win2K box via a crossover cable)
My problem is that if I dial up to my ISP with kppp, the default route is not set to ppp0, but remains on eth0 and I get no Internet connectivity. If I use RedHat's 'Network Device Control' app everything's OK. However I would like to use kppp as it times how long I've been connected (important if you get charged for staying online >1 hour!) and docks itself into the Panel out of the way.
Also, is there any way of running kppp without putting root's password in?
