    Mandrake 9 and kppp

    I'm using Mandrake 9 at work. There are 10 user accounts on this PC(Linux). We are all newbies. Only a few actually use it. I have root access and I have a user account.
    From root, I think i gave my user account pretty much permissions for everything.
    But, I set up kppp in my user account, it dials, you hear the modem talking briefly and the connection dies.
    I log on as root, I set up kppp, dial out and it connects.
    What I need is to have kppp set up in my user account only. But it seems I won't let me have access.
    I've looked at at /var/log/messages.
    It's not logging my attemps while logged on as a user.
    It is logging my connections as root.
    I'm setting up kppp the same in my user account and in root.
    K>NETWORKING>REMOTE ACCESS>KPPP

    I have an external modem:
    MODEM DEVICE:dev/ttyS0
    FLOW CONTROL: CRTSCTS
    LINE TERMINATION: CR
    CONNECTION SPEED: 57600
    X LOCKOUT FILE

    Root connects
    My user account dosen't

    Thanks..

    Re:Mandrake 9 and kppp

    I got it..
    I changed flow control from CRTSCTS to XON/XOFF
    Now it works

    Another question:
    When setting up kppp dial-up connection there is a LOCKOUT FILE option. What does this do?

    If it is checked, does it limit this connection profile the the user account that created it?
    If it is not checked, does it put this connection profile in all user accounts?

    While trying to get connected to the internet I was creating and deleting kppp connections. Most were just limited to my user account but one of them showed up in all user accounts. I can't remember If I unchecked that option or not.

    It's ok now but i'm just wondering if it was the LOCKOUT FILE option tha

    Its your run of the mill lockfile option. Basically lockfiles prevent the program from being run more than once concurrently. I dont see any harm in checking this box. I use the RedHat dialer frontend to wvdial, which IIRC has lockfiles in place already.
