You'll need the pptp-client package installed - I have one for 12.0 at http://slackware.com/~rworkman/pptp/ and one for Slackware -current at http://rlworkman.net/pkgs/current/

To be honest, configuration of pptp is not the simplest thing to do - read the docs on their site, and if you can't get it working, I'll try to help, but no promises... ;-)

If you don't have an internet connection, then you're not posting here, so I'm not going to worry about it.

Since you *are* posting here, then you *do* have an internet connection from somewhere. The rest is left as an exercise for the reader.

Is there a possibility to persist a connection? For my provider it is not stable enough, so I made a for((; ) cycle which checks for pppd running, every hour. Could it be achieved through configuring?

pppd has a 'persist' option in its config - whether and/or how well that will accomplish what you want, I honestly don't know.

There are options to retry anything, but if connection failes -- it never establishes again by pppd itself.
