PPP debian Policy?
Is there ANY debian policy that dictates how the ppp /user/group is supposed
to be setup/ or work ? Cause i can't find it.
As Far as i can tell a normal user must be part of both DIP and Dialout
groups to dial out and use PPP ? Is there any Funny Reason this is so ?
Reason I'm ask'in is altho I CAN Dialout as root. and CAN dialout as a Normal
user Via. " wvdial " I CANNOT Dial out with KPPP. ( PPPD Bombs out )
( I CAN dial out with kppp as root )
I'm tring to get to the bottom of this little mistery only to find ther is
Zero Documentation. ( Tho I'm not complaining, I simpithize with the
writers....I'm a busy guy 2 )
Any one with some eh.... pointers ?
Maybe I'll Write the PPP Section after I figure out how PPP is implemented in
debian........ Eh ?
FYI ( I have set KPPP to setuid. and is owned by root and group root. exec
other Same as wvdial. even added some read/write permisions on the
/etc/ppp/pap,options, *FILES* And nada......
PPPD says that KPPP is sending it a signal 15. that witch is normal after
kppp times out. it sends pppd a sig15.. )
