The isdnctrl binary has been part of I4L since forever. Perhaps the isdn
command you referred to was a wrapper script provided by whatever
distribution you used.

Even easier peasier is to set the interface up to autodial with the relevant
distribution specific GUI tool (Yast2 on SuSE) or do it by hand with
isdnctrl dialmode auto ippp0 # that syntax may not be 100%
If you do it by hand, man isdnctrl is your friend in order to set up idle
Having done that, you've got an autodialling net connection which comes up
in seconds. HOWEVER, it's completely silent, of course, so it behoves you to
keep an eye on some monitoring tool in case something on your HAN is very
talkative. As I may have mentioned before, an inch thick ISDN bill is a
terrible thing to behold :-(
