Re: PPP Dialup

You might want to look into DialD (Dial-on-Demand).  This package
automatically makes and breaks connections to the Internet as needed.  You
just start up NetScape, etc. and the modem dials...  After an inactivity
timeout, DialD drops the link (to save you money... <grin>...).  It's really
slick and many people use it.

As for an X config for PPP, I've never used it (I'm shell-prompt driven...),
but you're probably looking for XISP.

Both XISP and DialD are Debian packages....

Good Luck!
