It is there. Sporadically, however, I am knocked off for good. Ifconfig ppp0
lists no device and after a time, no ppp is running.
Since I have a home dynamic IP, such a script could also update the dn server
as well if it must reconnect.
Another, related question: Ssh updates its known host file everytime a new
host is accessed. If I test my connection, each new temporary IP gets placed
in this file. A waste--is there a way to defeat this or do I simply delete
the file occasionally if it gets too big?
