pppd redial


I'm looking for a way to get pppd to try for n times to connect to my
isp before giving up.

The problem is that quite often, pppd dials, then noting happens for a
little while then it stops - with a helpful "alarm" entered in the logs.

I *think* this error corresponds to the isp not answering, but I'm not
sure, since it doesn't the chat script is set to give a no answer error.

anyway - sometimes I have to make it dial two or three times by hand -
which is a pain.

(btw - I don't mean a persistant connection that redials when it drops



Today people in droves hurry up past Heumoz to Villars 
on the road to the ski hills, so they can rush down them
as fast as possible, so they can hurry up again in order
to rush down again.  In a way this is funny,...
