WvDial - quick observations
Hi, these aren't the results of a thorough investigation of this
program - so maybe my comments will better reflect some things that
ought to be changed/fixed if we are to use this program on a wider
1. The config program doesnt seem to ask for username, phone number
and password. If this is targeted at newbies, it should say , if it
does not do it itself, "please edit -configfile- now".
2. This config file should be 600. This is extremely important.
Maybe wvdialconfig should take care of this?
3. Should it be overwriting pon and poff like that?
I kind of like how pppd goes into the background instead of sticking
around, taking up a window.
Some mention of disableing the 'connect' option in ppp/options might
be good. I have no idea what the defaults are anymore, though...
