Dear Knights of Ilug;

an extract of the log file for your info please:

2. Sorry a bit long but thought I better reproduce the relevant parts. As evident from above usb
device is started by root on boot on /dev/ttyUSB0; aunthicated by pppd and connection established.
However I am unable to start and stop it, even as root. How does one do that.
Warm regards
