for those of us too lazy to set up diald, there's always the question
of turning off ppp connections when we're tired but have a large
ftp session going, this script might be of use:
echo -e "time\t total\t\tdelta\tdeltas below 30 (exit when > 4)"
while /sbin/ifconfig | grep -q ppp0; do
n=`/sbin/ifconfig ppp0|grep RX|cut -d: -f2|cut -d\ -f1`
if [ $[ $n - $o ] -lt 30 ]; then
f=$[ $f + 1 ]
if [ $f -gt 4 ]; then
date "+%T $n%t%t"$[ $n - $o ]"%t$f"
i save this under pppwait in my bin dir.
