there are sever "out of the box" problems with the 2.0.1 version of kppp...
The 2.1 should either work currently out of the box (the latest version that
is) or will in the next version.
If it does not currently it should only be due to a option in /etc/ppp/options
that kppp requires..(forget which one)...
if this isnt' the case then I need to know what's broken so I can fix it.
The perms on kppp should be:
-rwsr-xr-- 1 root dip 438012 Jan 7 01:08 /usr/bin/kppp
which should reflect pppd's:
-rwsr-xr-- 1 root dip 207836 Aug 7 06:46 /usr/sbin/pppd
