Redhat Mandrake 6.0 kppp Question

By db01 ·
I am using kppp for dialup connection to the Net.When I use kppp as root,the dialog box pops up with the username and password filled in with the default values,so I just have to click on the connect button to start dialling up.However,when logged in as a non-root user in the root group,the dialog box pops up just with the default connection name already filled in,but with blanks for username and password.The latter two have to be filled whenever I want to connect.Can this be changed so that kppp behaves similar to root?

you can set up the connection, like you did with the root account (i.e., configure DNS, login script, etc.) or just copy the .kppp file from root's directory to the "non-root" user's home directory, before setting appropriate permissions to the file.
