Re: automated ppp testing

hi tim,

Is there a package out there that can monitor/test an ISP's connection
(using PPP) on a regular basis?

what exactly do you want to test? if a connection is available?

>  Just something that'll start a PPP
connection, kill it immediately, and keep a log of it.

i don't know a package. i would do this manually:increase the debug level and look into the syslog. if you want to automatize this: config the syslog.conf: write into a named pipe. a little script can read this pipe an grep for 'pppd' or the something, that you want to monitor.

hope this helps
