I have red hat linux 5.2, I have set up a ppp interface to dialout as ppp0 and it works beautifully. I also have enabled autoppp dialin and that works fine too. However when the dialin comes in, I would like it to use ppp1 as the interface, however it always uses ppp0. How can I change it?   Thanks in advance, Nicholas Waltham

you can't, unless you change the source for the pppd, it automatically starts numbering at 0.  You could setup something silly like a pair of ppp processes that talk to each other across two serial ports on the machine, but as I said that is pretty silly.  I would like to know however why you would even care what the device name is..

I wouldn't want to do anything silly!! No - the reason why I asked is because I wanted to run a different script on a sucessful establishment of a ppp dialin, than on a sucessful establishment of a ppp dialout (that operate on the same modem)
