Incoming from David Baron:
Is there a little script that can be cron-d to check if the internet
connection (pptp -> ppp0) is up and if not, reconnect?
Try using the keyword "persist" in /etc/ppp/options.
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?
Just run a cron-job with a script like this
if [ $? != "0" ]
