how to set up two accounts on dial-up (gnome-ppp)


Hello. I'm wondering how to set up two different dial-up accounts on gnome-ppp (or kppp, but since I'm currently using gnome-ppp, I'd prefer information on that).

... gnome-ppp is a gui for wvdial, its global configuration file is /etc/wvdial.conf file. (man wvdial.conf) See what happens if you set different sections in that.

Or just use:

wvdial section

Thanks for the link.

I screwed around with gnome-ppp for a bit, and then gave up. So, I decided to go with kppp. With kppp I did get the two accounts set up -- admittedly, it was a bit of a struggle getting kppp to work with my regular user (it worked fine with root), but after I went to configuration and manually entered the modem commands (copying them from the root user to the normal user), it worked (also had to uncomment "noauth" in /etc/ppp/peers/kppp-options).
