Every now and then my PPP connection hangs up, and the menu ticker just repeats "Disconnecting... " ad infinitum. I can't dial back in, and have to restart. When I try and kill ppp with Process Viewer, it says I don't have permission as it's a root process.
So, does anyone know a permanent way of fixing this, or a workaround? And just how do I log in as root anyway?
Curiosly and seperately, when I have killed all my open internet apps, and want to get on with some offline work, ppp still attempts to dial in every few minutes - what's with that? It doesn't happen if I start up with a blank slate (no net apps).
