Is there an X-based PPP manager?

Hello,

I currently use pppd and chat to dial up to my host computer.  Is there
some sort of an X-window
wrapper around this to make the user interface more civilized?  Thanks

If you are running fvwm2, check out tkgoodstuff, it has a built-in ppp
manager.  Or, if you are running the AfterStep window manager, "asppp"
will do the same.

I believe there is also one called "TkNet".

Thanks

I just found an awsome one called ezppp. Just do an altavista search
on linux and ezppp. If you can't find it let me know and I'll mail it
to you. It really easy, comes with elf and static versions. just
execute ezppp in an xterm and the app will come up. Just enter the
basic info in the pull down windows (phone number, login ID, pswd,
etc).

Can you PLEASE mail me the addy or the program?
My Web-browsers have crashed under W95, and
I just cant get pppd or chat to work on the terminal...
(I'm not exactly a wiz at scripting...)

TNX!

I've been using TkNet; nice interface and fairly easy to use.  Try one
of the search engines to find it.  If you can't email me and I'll see
if I can remember where I found it.

1. Looking for X-based file manager/browser/Finder

OK, maybe this is a stupid question, because it seems so obvious a need,
but...

Where can I find an X-based tool for Linux that does something along the
lines of:
        - the NeXT File Browser
        - the Windows File Manager
        - the Macintosh Finder

On other words, an X-based file system browser, ideally with some basic
manipulation tools like drag-copy, deleting, text file viewing, and such.
Ideally, I'd like to be able to double-click on a directory and have it
open up a new window.

The only think I've found so far that's even remotely close is 'dired'
under Emacs -- and that's pretty remote.

How can this not exist?
