PPP (dialup)

I have been installed with Redhat 4.0. It was great installation but I have a problem with dialup (ppp) that I could not find. I dont know where is it. I need your help to find how I can set up. Is it in Xwindows or Linux for easy to set up? can you display me for example (step by step)? I am sorry that I am new to LINUX since I installed.
Thanks,

you can modify a script with an editor to have  the ppp
dial up (do you have a modem ?).
in /usr/sbin/ppp-on you can adjust the parameters
for the number to call and some other like the network.

this is sure for slakware,for redhat can be in other place the file.
you can search with :
find / -name "ppp-on" -print
and after you can modify it.
if you don't find or you have other question tell me so i can
modify for you the file.
this file is only for get up the connection.
for put down you have to launch the ppp-off (usually in the same diretcory)
and you don't have to change it (it's only a kill -15 _somthing_)
.
Exist something for the Xwindow but have this scripts it's really
simple to manage.
ah,btw, for check the connection you have to see on :

pstree -p
the line with pppd
and with :

ifconfig

something about ppp0

and more :

netstat -r

have to whow you the route table modified for the ppp.
have a nice dialing. :)

The pppd and ppp-on - ppp-off script way to dial up is not an easy way to go.  If You can reac the Internet and download ezppp then Your life will be much easier.

I guess You will configure ezppp in less than 15 minutes.  If not then I can almoet guarrantee that You will have it configured within one hour :-)  Then it is only to point and click.  

Check out this link to download ezppp.
