I am curious here, when we dont have any dialer program for windows to connect to dataone, do we need one to connect from linux, as i said all i did was setup linux to get ip from DHCP server, the username and password are entered in the router thru its setup page at 192.168.1.1 , so why do we need to setup ppp

it depends.. you are using your modem in ppp mode.. therefore ur modem dials the connection for you.. if you setup it up to be in bridge mode, then you would need to manually dial the connection.. this does not depend on the os which you are using.. in windows, you would have to create a new connection using dial up networking, in linux you are doing it using rppp
