you ticked the boxes about normal users starting
and stoping the interface.
Usernet is a proggie that you or any user on your
system can use to start pppd. This only works in X.
To start the interface from the command line, the
following can be used:
alias callit='/usr/sbin/usernetctl ifcfg-ppp0 up'
alias discon='/usr/sbin/usernetctl ifcfg-ppp0 down'
At least that's what I used in ~/.bashrc before I
dumped my modem.
But if you wish at once to do nothing and to be respectable
nowdays, the best pretext is to be at work on some profound study.
