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
