JBURGHARDT, i was looking at the tzolinux client, it's a cgi script, you only can access it from the web it cannot be added to the ppp-scripts and they dont allow telnet sessions.

What you want is the /etc/ppp/ip-up script.  In the package you recieved from TZO you should have gotten a shell script that calls up Lynx to log you into the system.  To call this when your machine establishes a PPP connection simply copy the line that calls up lynx to somewhere in your /etc/ppp/ip-up script.  Make sure that /etc/ppp/ip-up is a valid shell script (ie- starts with #!/bin/sh) and is executable (chmod a+rx /etc/ppp/ip-up).  This will run the TZO system every time you login to the network.  In linux there is no provisioning for running stuff BEFORE the link is down, /etc/ppp/ip-down is run after the connect is dead, so you have not chance of running tzo.signoff unless you doso yourself.  This is not needed though, since TZO does not require a logout, so you can just have it login again and it'll update to your current IP.  If you have any questions let me know.

This is quite simple, you should add a line that looks much like this (put it near the end of the file somewhere)

/path/that/you/installed/tzo/client/to/TZO.Signon

That's it!
