 ppp.linkup not executed
Hi together,

PPP works so far. But my /etc/ppp.linkup will not be executed after a
dial (the connection works, I'm posting this message over it):

$ ls /etc/ppp/ppp.linkup
2 -rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  35 Feb  4 20:49 /etc/ppp/ppp.linkup

$ cat /etc/ppp/ppp.linkup
!bg echo "online" > /tmp/test

$ ppp -ddial tdsl
Working in ddial mode
Using interface: tun0

$ cat /tmp/test

So it is obvious, that ppp.linkup was not executed after a dial. BTW a
ppp.linkup as follow does not work either:

$ cat /etc/ppp/ppp.linkup
! sh "/bin/rm /tmp/test"

$ cat /etc/ppp/ppp.linkup
!bg echo "online" > /tmp/test

What's the problem? I really don't see any fault...

Please help.

I believe you need to put a space before '!'.  I just tried this here
and it worked:

 !bg sh -c /bin/echo online > /tmp/test

My problem is that when I run ppp -ddial <label> the dest_addr of gets put as default gateway and then the thing hangs (modem
won't dial).  I need to kill the ppp process and remove that route
(default gateway as 127...) and issue ppp again.  Then it works.  This
happens all the time.

Hmm, doesn't look executable to me. chmod 744. But then, I may be wrong for

Remove the obvious part (including the dot) for my email address

Right! That was the problem! Now it is running fiiiine.

Hmm... I use PPPOE (DSL) connection. Would you please post your routing
information before and after the first and second dial?

thank you!

Glad to help.

I managed to get it working by making a modification to my dial
script.  My main problem now is trying to figure out why my pc card
(i'm on a laptop) is performing so badly.  See my post "trouble with
