True. But for some reason I have never been able to get this to work
right. What happens is the phone begins dialing then just stops half way
through. I then can't dial out again without a reboot. (My modem is
internal.) I'm sure it is some flaw in my hardware but pppupd works for
me and pppd doesn't. Besides pppupd can launch a script upon bringing the
connection up or down so you could more complicated things than just
restarting if you wished.
So all in all I agree it's not the most useful program but not entirely
