this problem is tellling: cant get  access to /dev/ppp when it is started as a 
normal user (even, when started with kdesu). Starting as root it is working. 
So I guessed, that it is a rights problem.

Is it corrrect, what russel told, that /usr/sbin/pppd should be set to 
rwxsrxr-x root:dip ?

Mine is set to rwxr-xr-x root:root, although it is installed by  default (I 
didn't change anything).

By the way, there is somewhere a bugreport related to this problem of umtsmon 
somewhere in the mailinglist.

Best regards
