KPPP Permissions


Hi all.... When I try to run KPPP fron the run command I get this error.

You don't have sufficient permission to run
/usr/sbin/pppd
Please make sure that kppp is owned by root and has the SUID bit set.

Since I am still learning linux I am trying to figure out how you set permissions on this file... Is it the chmod command? If so I have used it and thought I set the right permissions. After I click on the OK button it goes into the KPPP Configure box. So I am confused on the error. Can anyone give me some guidance on this problem? Thanks for your Help

Wait a second .

Do a
Code:
chmod u+s /path/to/kppp
That's what the error said...

(Exchange /path/to with the true path to Kppp)

Also, as far as I remember, run Kppp once as root, that allows you to access its setup from its menu from where you can take care of the problem.
