Please try to create the file:

Code: Select all

mkdir /etc/ppp/peers
echo noauth > /etc/ppp/peers/kppp-options
Not sure why this file isn't generated in latest kppp build. Let me know if this works and i will add the file in final release.
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.
