Hi, I have an internet connection using a ADSL Alcatel SpeedTouch USB modem, and I don't have it all the time on my computer, so when I have it, and want to connect, I have to type:
sh adsl.sh (wich contains:
/path/modem_run -f /path/mgmt.o
pppd call adsl
What I would like to do, is like with internet explorer(sorry
) when trying opening a webpage, it would execute pppd automatically, something like that, or just having a file to launch, without having to connect beeing root.
Someone told me something about suid root, but I'm not quite sure what that is, and how it works.
Also, one last thing, is there a way of, when plugging in the modem, havng something that detects it, and starts the detection script or whatever it is called (modem_run) ?? (just as windows ? (sorry again))
Thanks in advance
btw, am I posting at the right place ??
