I use diald and ppp. diald has the capability to shutdown an idle
connection after a specified number of seconds. This works well
for me. I also don't have to dial, as diald takes of this for me
automagically when I try to access a URL or an ftp site. It also
dials on my computer when my son or wife access the net from their
computers. It's a good program...
