    Giving Kppp rights to other users n groups



    I am using kppp (Redhat el) for connecting to the net and everytime it asks for the root password. How to give kppp rights to other users and groups so that they can use dialup without giving root password?
    Thankyou

    what you're actually calling, when you click on kpp, is not kppp, but a symbolic link to something called consolehelper (have a look at the kppp in /usr/bin and /usr/sbin (ie. 'ls /usr/bin/kppp -alF' and the same for the other file)).

    Whjat you can do, if you want, is point directly at the real kppp. Also have a look at the help text that comes with kppp (part of KDE) as this talks about setting up security.

    have fun

    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
