Description Adam Spiers 1999-05-26 00:52:27 UTC
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 15:52:59 UTC
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 15:45:59 UTC
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 20:18:59 UTC
Jacques, can you comment on this, please?

Comment 4 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-02-15 17:22:59 UTC
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 23:08:22 UTC
rp3 is the currently supported way of doing ppp configuraton (which I'm guessing
dialctl is supposed to handle)
