View Full Version : stop ADSL on boot up

6th May 2006, 09:46 PM
Hallo my fellow fedorians

Could somebody please tell me how I can stop my connection to the Internet starting up at boot time. I am using a speedtouch 330 ADSL USB modem. I would like to have the option of manually connecting to the internet once my OS has booted up and then perhaps use a hotkey to startup my connection or use a login script to gain access to the internet.
I understand I may need to stop the PPP services from starting during boot time, but if this is so how do I re start them again from the shell. It would be alot easier to /sbin/adsl-start

Any help would be appreciated

open a terminal and type:

su -

and then...

username "username@isp"
eth "tap0"
demand = "no"
dns = "server"
password = "password"
conf. password = "password"
firewall = "0"
allow use by non-root = "y"
connect on boot = "n"
save = "y"
