Description Adam Spiers 1999-05-25 20:52:27 EDT
netconf --dialctl doesn't seem to do anything,
even with newer versions of linuxconf (e.g. 1.15r3)
Comment 1 Jay Turner 1999-06-28 11:52:59 EDT
Sure enough, this command does not appear to have any effect on the
system.  This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-07-13 11:45:59 EDT
Jacques, is there supposed to be a mapping from dialctl to
the Red Hat network config stuff in linuxconf?
Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-08-28 16:18:59 EDT
Jacques, can you comment on this, please?
Comment 4 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-02-15 12:22:59 EST
Just checked this. Current linuxconf still exits immediately when invoking
netconf --dialctl.
netconf lists --dialctl as an optional parameter when you do netconf --help, but
doesn't indicate what it's supposed to do.

This bug is heading for its one year old anniversary.  Any chance
of some action on it?
Comment 6 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-09-13 19:08:22 EDT
rp3 is the currently supported way of doing ppp configuraton (which I'm guessing
dialctl is supposed to handle)
