Re: kppp doesn't work out of the box

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
