PPP connection under root is fine, but I want to connect as a user.
I have changed permissions on the various internet-relevant files in
the /etc and /etc/ppp directories so that they are world readable /
I have given the group "users" access to usr/sbin/pppd and to diald
because when I first typed pppd as a user, I got the message:
"pppd command not found", so I reckoned it was a permission problem.
This still didn't solve it so I added the paths /usr/sbin and /etc to
my .profile file and that seems to have got me a bit further. It's
still not right, because I seem to connect very briefly and the
message pppd died unexpectedly appears. This only happens
when I try to connect as a user, not as root.
I don't know what needs to be altered - any suggestions ?
Thanks a lot,
