    Check /var/log/messages or perhaps under /var/log/ppp. All of my pppd messages go into /var/log/messages.

    Well,here is a dump of some of the linesfrom /var/log/messages i think are relevant:
    Code:
    09:20:55 crunchbang pppd[1664]:pppd 2.4.5 started by root,uid 0
    09:20:55 crunchbang pppd[1664]:Using interface ppp0
    09:20:55 crunchbang pppd[1664]:Connect ppp0<-->/dev/pts2
    09:21:26 crunchbang pppd[1664]:CP:timeout sending config-requests
    09:21:26 crunchbang pppd[1664]:Connection terminated
    09:21:26 crunchbang pppd[1664]:Modem hangup
    09:21:30 Exit.
