Description Nate Golnik 1999-10-12 17:49:03 UTC
The Persist="no" line in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0 no longer works.
The modem keeps dialing and dialing until kill -9 all the

Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-08 15:35:59 UTC
PERSIST is case-sensitive.  "Persist" won't work, and never would

Comment 2 Nate Golnik 1999-11-08 15:45:59 UTC
PERSIST="no" doesn't work either

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-09 15:00:59 UTC
PERSIST defaults to "no".  I've never seen this problem.  I just
tested it here, both without any PERSIST line at all, and with
PERSIST=no, and in both cases, it doesn't persist.  I need more

Now, PERSIST has *nothing* to do with redialing if the connection
was never established.  PERSIST only is queried if the connection
was up in the first place and then came down.
