Getting Connected to the Internet with KPPP
Written by: Paul Penrod

This document is designed to give a detailed simplified view on how to generally setup an Earthlink connection using KPPP, however, it can be applied to any ISP. The method on display here was tested on Open Linux 2.3 using KPPP V1.6.11 (supplied with the Open Linux 2.3 distribution release), with several varieties of external modems. If you have another distribution of Linux with KPPP, there is a good chance the method here will work, but you may have to change an item or two. Please refer to you distribution documentation concerning any changes or variations in configuring KPPP.

This method has not been tested with all modem types, so I can not guarantee yours will work if you are using an unusual brand name modem Ė external or internal. If you have problems with your specific modem, please refer to the KPPP HTML documentation that comes with the KPPP distribution before calling Earthlink.

If you donít have KPPP and would like to get it, you can find the source at, where KPPP is part of the KDE network package.

When you start KPPP for the first time, you are presented with a blank starting dialog box. Press the SETUP button to create your new Earthlink account.

The Configuration dialog appears on the screen with the first tabbed entry for Accounts displayed. If there were account established, they will appear in the Account Setup text field, which if currently blank.
