Description Nate Golnik 1999-10-12 13:49:03 EDT
The Persist="no" line in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0 no longer works.
The modem keeps dialing and dialing until kill -9 all the
processes.
Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-08 10:35:59 EST
PERSIST is case-sensitive.  "Persist" won't work, and never would
have.
Comment 2 Nate Golnik 1999-11-08 10:45:59 EST
PERSIST="no" doesn't work either
Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-09 10:00:59 EST
PERSIST defaults to "no".  I've never seen this problem.  I just
tested it here, both without any PERSIST line at all, and with
PERSIST=no, and in both cases, it doesn't persist.  I need more
information.

Now, PERSIST has *nothing* to do with redialing if the connection
was never established.  PERSIST only is queried if the connection
was up in the first place and then came down.
