Hi!,

Not directly, but if you put a packet sniffer on the line like SNORT or
tcpdump, you should see which packets are flying to the device.  From there,
you should be able to track down which machine was responsible for triggering
the dial-out.

Always be on the lookup out for Windows machines sending broadcasts however.
I have seen a number of installations where a Windows machine doing a
broadcast to the rest of the network was responsible for the server starting a
dial-out connection to a ISP.

See ya

1. demand dialing vs. the other demand dialing

Has anyone successfully used the pppd "demand" option, or is it considered a
joke and diald the True Way?

Does "pppd demand" randomly eat all your existing routes, effectively turing
off the ethernet device, or am I seeing things?
