pon poff authority
I use pppd with the dial on demand option, it works great but I need a way of
turning it on and off via pon/poff FROM the logged in user ...
To get this to work I have ...
chmod u+s /usr/sbin/pppdroot
chgrp dip /sbin/killall5
Sets up SUID for pppd
Setup users to use pon/poff .. puts users in group dip
insert a FLAG="a" at line 52 to kill all pppds automatically
Call bbppp with
bbppp -thru -com -d
And everything works aok with bbppp
If root calls pon, it with ppp_on_boot in /etc/ppp then a user cannot stop
pppd with poff
However if the user calls pon, it works, poff stops pppd
Due to my setup, I realy need ppp_on_boot to start and user to stop start if
Any ideas ??
Is the way I have setup dip and SUID secureish ??!!
mv /etc/ppp/ppp_on_boot /etc/ppp/no_ppp_on_boot
