Very big newbie warning...
I've managed to install pppd 2.2.0e, I have a chat script written, and I
have managed to successfully run pppd. I run it in debugging mode and
am told that I've connected and my ID and password have been accepted.
My big question is how do I know that the login process is completely
(and correctly) finished? Should I get a message saying something to
the effect of "Your IP address is ...", (Boston University uses dynamic
addresses), or is this one of those occasions where Linux goes on its
merry way after successfully completing something without bothering to
inform the ever-so-humble system administrator?
And one more minor question... How do I kill the damn process? I've
tried to find the right .pid, but I can't seem to exit the session.
Thanks in advance...
