I have a suggestion to you. In /usr/doc/ppp-2XX/ thers is a scripts
subdirectory. In it is 3 scripts ppp-on ppp-off and ppp-on-dialer. Thes
scripts have alwasy worked GREAT for me. First modify the scripts o match
your login and phone numbers. Make sure you edit the ppp-on -dialer script
for the pppoptions such as what device /dev sttty0 and modem speed. Then
put ppp-on and off on the usr/bin folder and installppp-on -dialer in
/etc/ppp. As long as your modem is configured correctly these scripts work
> after shutting down the modem-connection by 'ifdown ppp0' like I always
> do, the system hang up completely. Reset was the only way the go on. Of
> course I had to repair the system with 'e2fsck /dev/sda1' which worked
> fine, but I lost the ability to dial up to internet: /sbin/ifup and
> /sbin/ifdown are completely gone!!! How can I get them off the RH 6.1 CD
> again? I hope I don't have to reinstall the system!!!
