Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 16724
no way to add ppp interface
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
I just installed the Red Hat 6.9 on my intel pentium where I had been
running Red Hat 6.2 until now.
I have found a problem with setting up a ppp dialer.
I use the setup utility "netcfg" and it usually calls up
a dialog box with several tabs.
Normally, I would click on the "interface" tab and press "add"
and then I would get a dialog box with different devices.
ppp, slip, eth and so on.
Under version 6.9 thee is no "ppp" option. There doesn't seem to be
anything in linuxconf either. has this been replaced by something else or
was it accidentally left out?
Please use rp3 instead. The various tools never interoperated correctly
(program A was always oblivious to the details of how program B set up PPP,
where A and B could be any of netcfg, linuxconf, or rp3).
