Description David Kaplan 2003-01-26 16:18:10 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
This isnt so much a bug as a design problem.  If you activate an interface using
redhat-config-network, there is no way to stop it while it is in the process. 
This leads to problems particularly with modem connections - if the connection
attempt goes bad, you have a horrible time stopping and restarting it - the only
was I have found is su and kill the ppp processes.  This at times leaves the
modem uninitialized.  I used to use rp3 just because of this problem, but now
this is not supported.

  

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.use neat to create a dialup interface.
2.dial a bogus number - 555-5555
3.oops - you can hear the operator talking, but there isnt much you can do about it
    

Expected Results:  should add a stop or retry button to the activating interface
window.
