establishing ppp connection as non-root

Hi all,
I configured ppp successfully using pppconfig and make use of pon/poff 
commands to bring up and bring down the link respectively. However, pon only 
works when ran as root and refuses otherwise.

user@fep:~$ pon

please configure /etc/ppp/peers/provider or use a command line argument to use 
another file in /etc/ppp/peers directory.

Is it possible to run pon as non root? Tried changing some parameters in 
/etc/ppp/options and /etc/ppp/peers/provider with little or no success. 
Anyway, if it is possible then how does one go about it. 

Thanks and regards,
