Re: Getting a PPP Connection

I have found that using kppp "kde's" dialup application, works very well.
there should be a menu entry called "KDE MENU" or something close to it.
click the Sub-Menu entry called INTERNET and select kppp.
you will need the Primary and Secondary DNS  settings provided by your
ISP you michael also need to use a static IP address
