KPPP Permissions

When I execute kppp, it asks for an admin password.

I have checked the permissions of the bin/kppp file and changed access to enable user, group & owner to execute,write,read, but it still asks for an admin password each time.

Check SUID in permisions to, then it shouldn't ask for the pass.
