PPPD Script problem when cron-scheduling the script

Hi everyone!!

I have a perl script that runs fine from my user (root user), but errors when cron runs it.

I´m scheduled in crontab a pppd connection (dialup), with the set of scripts


I can connect OK if I run directly from shell the script /usr/sbin/ppp-on,
but if the connection is scheduled by crontab, pppd returns the message "Connect script failed"

I have read and test with a wrapper script (like that post ) , but this does not resolve my problem.

Any ideas?
