Keeping modem online while changing user
I've been using Linux (MDK9.1 in KDE) for about a month. Does anybody know of a way to prevent a dial-up modem from disconnecting when you logout from a given user, then login to another?
The reason I want to do this is so another person in the house can check her email and have the whole thing password protected. Is it possible to do this or am I forced to have to find an e-mail client that will suit this purpose?
I currently have things set up so that she can check her e-mail in KMail, which I copied onto the desktop as an icon and set it up to have her as the user and, therefore, it asks for her password. But this is not entirely foolproof. For example the address book won't work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
