I did it, but still I am not able to run pon from my personal account. I
got the following messages after pon:

/usr/bin/pon: /usr/sbin/pppd: Permission denied
/usr/bin/pon: exec:/usr/sbin/pppd: cannot execute: Permission denied

(remember that my personal account is aready a member of dip)

I wonder if it is a matter of privilege. After  ls -l /usr/bin/pon I got

-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  root 50 Nov 4 19:07 /usr/bin/pon

and after ls -l /usr/sbin/pppd I got

-rwxr-x---  1  root  dip  183504  Nov 4 19:07 /usr/sbin/pppd

Any help will be very welcome. Thanks in advance
