hi all.

this is rather a rather ridiculous question... erm..

how do i open a dialup (ppp) connection to my isp from within gnome?
anything like usernet or kppp? perhaps something called gppp?
(i tried searching for something called gppp, non-existent though)

tried using usernet.. doesn't work. noticed that there's an applet
in gnome that has a play/pause and stop button, but can't seem to
find where to configure it.

dug around some HOWTOs and FAQs too.. no mention. then browsed thru
the whole gnome online help. nothing on it...

configured ppp0 in linuxconf though.

i'm sure i can set up the connection manually (scripts, ifconfig, pppd,
etc), but thought i should just try out stuffs on gnome.

thanks a mil in advance...


i don't suffer from stress... i'm a carrier.
