It might not affect you with Suse but on Mandrake the "demand" function in
pppd appears to be bust in Mandrake 10.0 and 10.1. I was told to reinstall an
older version of pppd (from mandrake 9.1) and that works fine. I just pass
this on as I am not sure if its a Mandrake specific issue or a general pppd
issue and I didn't find a lot about it googling around.
Another note, the very useful option
which stops your gateway being kept open by random junk pinging your modem
(worms etc) and keeping the connection open for hours is not supported in
later versions of pppd.
