1. I have tried and failed at getting pppd to run as a non-root user. I
have attached /etc/ppp/options and /etc/ppp/peers/ubunix who I believe are
the culprits. Other info that may be useful
Permissions of /etc/ppp/pap-secrets 0600
2. I am not able to get my ip-up script to run when the line comes up as
well as my ip-down script to run when the line goes down. Attached for
your reading enjoyment.
Permissions of /etc/ppp/ip-up 0700
I've been documenting the whole learning process and will put up a new
user tutorial on my website when I have everything humming along. Thanks
for all the help so far.
