What I did to get fetchmail to run when I connected (I'm also using SLRN
so I've got one for it as well, same theory applies).
I put a script into the ip-up.d directory called fetchmail (giving it read
and execute access for all users) which contained a command line to run
fetchmail (I set it up as a deamon). Here's the script I use :-
# Fetchmail Start Up Script
su -l -c "fetchmail -d 300" khan
# End of Script
That's basically all I had to do to get it running properly, now all I've
got to do to connect is run 'pon' as root (I suppose I could run 'pon' as
a user, but I would have to go in and change a lot of permissions, so I
run it as root, it's just as easy).
