Description Anthony Rumble 2002-11-13 07:01:32 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
If I change the provider name and number
in a PPP config, then click on "Apply", it doesn't update
nor does it update /etc/ppp/peers/ppp0
Consequently, when I activate ppp0, it calls the old config
If I remove the /etc/ppp/peers/ppp0 file, it will re-create it
with the correct provider name..

But I have to remove /etc/wvdial.conf and delete my ppp0 entry
and create the ppp0 entry again to correct the /etc/wvdial.conf file.

So, to effectively change ISP, you have to delete both files, and
the ppp0 entry from the Network configuration, and start again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create modem/ppp0 entry
2.apply and activate.
3.deactivate and edit the ppp0 entry and change provider name and number
4. apply and activate... 

Actual Results:  It dials the old number

Expected Results:  It should have correctly updated the /etc/wvdial.conf and
files with the new provider settings.

Same for me... although I had not tackled the /etc/ppp/peers/ppp0 removal trick
to get the correct number dialed.
I have installed phoebe's latest redhat-config-network and will try if things
get better or worse
