Hi, I ran pppconfig some time ago and I could connect to the
internet just fine using "pon." My isp has three dial up numbers and
two were down, one of them was the one I use as my default. I looked at
the pppconfig man page and discovered I could have more than one
account. So I ran pppconfig again and set it up so I could enter "pon
mpool" at the prompt and it should dial the number that wasn't down.
When I tried "pon mpool" I got an error message that there was no
/etc/ppp/peers/mpool file or directory. So I made the file, tried
again, didn't work. Went to the /etc/ppp/peers/binary.net file
(binary.net is my default account) I copied the file and put that
material in the /etc/ppp/peers/mpool file. The file now looks like
crossyourfingers:/usr/share/afterstep# cat /etc/ppp/peers/mpool
# This file was generated by pppconfig. You can edit the following
# but please do not delete lines or the change the comments or you will
# confuse pppconfig.
connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/chatscripts/binary.net"
user ktb #pppconfig_user
# End of pppconfig controlled lines. You can add lines below here
# confusing pppconfig.
I tried changing the line /etc/chatscripts/binary.net to read
/etc/chatscripts/mpool that didn't work. So I am at a loss here. I
have read the pppconfig man page and there is nothing there that I can
see will help me with this problem. My primary isp number for v90/k56
modems is still down, I finally found the file /etc/chatscrips/provider
and changed the number there to the general modem pool number so I can
get online now but I would still like to set up pppconfig so I can
access the different numbers without having to edit the file.
