I can't explain why or exactly when, but occasionally Netscape 2.0 will destroy my PPP connection. My modem is
still connected, and I see pppd still running. I don't know if this is:
1) Because I use the pop-perl5 script to get mail from panix.com ... and it might be conflicting with Netscape wrt.
my Inbox? I doubt this.
2) Because there's some bug in Netscape?
3) Because my provider's mailserver has brain damage?
I've had the problem occur, then kill pppd, kill au (network audio server), and my connection returns. But I've
also tried conneting with Netscape ... without the above processes running ... and it still locks the connection.
A locked connection is when I cannot telnet, ftp, or go anywhere that I normally could.
