where is the idle setting in kppp?


Hello. I'm looking for the idle setting in kppp, so that I can set a certain time for it to disconnect from the internet if the connection has been idle for some time (like 120 seconds). In doing a web search I found this forum posting that says that kppp has this setting somewhere, but I've looked, and I myself couldn't find it. So, if you could let me know where it is, I'd appreciate it.

I emailed a developer of kppp, who kindly got back to me, to let me know that the gui does not have a setting for this. However, there is a "customise pppd commands" button, that allows one to enter a command such as "idle 120" to allow disconnecting after a connection has gone idle for a while.
