How to re-open kppp after closing window

Hi - I am a total newbie (2nd day ever on Linux after about 15 years on windows...)

I have just installed Fedora core 1 and have been playing around setting up the basics (printer / email / dial up connection etc) I use Kppp to connect to the internet and inadvertently closed the KPPP window. My modem didn't drop the connection which was fine but then when I finally did want to disconnect I couldn't work out how to recall Kppp to drop the line. I tried selecting Kppp again from the internet apps menu but the system told me that it was already running - which I kind of knew but didn't know how to get it back!

In the end I had to reboot to drop the connection (which I am sure is not the correct procedure!)

"I couldn't work out how to recall Kppp to drop the line. "

When kppp connects it will minimize to the taskbar to disconnect click on the task bar item and bring up the dialouge box and you can disconnect.
