You might find Bill Unruh's "How to hook up PPP" helpful -- at
# Script to initiate a ppp connection. This is the first part of the
# pair of scripts. This is not a secure pair of scripts as the codes
# are visible with the 'ps' command. However, it is simple.
# These are the parameters. Change as needed.

ACCOUNT=XXX # The account name for logon
PASSWORD='XXXXXX' # The password for this account
LOCAL_IP=0.0.0.0 # Local IP address if known. Dynamic = 0.0.0.0
REMOTE_IP=0.0.0.0 # Remote IP address if desired. Normally 0.0.0.0
NETMASK=255.255.255.0 # The proper netmask if needed
# Export them so that they will be available at 'ppp-on-dialer' time.

# This is the location of the script which dials the phone and logs
# in. Please use the absolute file name as the $PATH variable is not
# used on the connect option. (To do so on a 'root' account would be
# a security hole so don't ask.)
# Initiate the connection
# I put most of the common options on this command. Please, don't

# as desired. Don't use the 'defaultroute' option if you currently

1. setup.ins error when installing OO in 5.0-REL
I just recently compiled OpenOffice 1.0.2 from ports (vs the package because I
want WITH_TTF_BYTECODE_ENABLED). The make worked fine, but when I do a make
install-user, I get the error about not being able to find setup.ins in
/usr/local/OpenOffice.org1.0/program/. I searched for this error but all the
info I found was old, regarding manual patches (which probably don't work
anymore with current versions) and stuff about it appearing if you're using a
FreeBSD older than 4.6 and to upgrade.
Any idea why this message would be occuring with 5.0-REL?
2. secure telnet from dos box to linux box
3. PPP dial-ins refused, OSR-5 with net100
7. IP Accounting doesn't work for PPP dial-ins :-(( ??
8. Turn off autologout on Tcsh?
9. ppp setup on 1.2.X / printer setup
10. PPP: RH 5.0 - netcfg broke working ppp setup...
11. user-ppp and kernel-ppp setup example
12. PPP and PPP and PPP and PPP and PPP and HEADACHE
13. Demand dialed PPP (was Re: FOLLOWUP: PPP client setup help)
