Has anyone seen this with slackware 96 when su - to a username from
root. It produces this error message /dev/ttyp0: Operation not permitted
I have checked permissions on /dev files.
Any ideas would be nice!

Don't know about Slackware as such, my Linux is hand-rolled; but you could
take a look at /etc/securetty and/or /etc/login.defs I suppose. On some
unixen /etc/ttys is also significant in setting security-levels.
I have almost completed setting up the PPP on my system;
and now the problem! I can telnet/ftp/ping just about any internet
server but I can only use the URL number for the server. When
I attempt to use the domain name the system sits like a slug until
I CTRL-C the application.
I read another post which said I should comment out routing
commands in /usr/rc.d/rc.inet1 but when I checked none of
them were uncommented (except for the loopback commands
which did not seem to make a difference.)
What can I do?
