Chestnut Dialer - About


Chestnut Dialer is PPP (Point to Point Protocol) dialing program, written in Python. Many Internet providers, that provide dialup service, use PPP protocol; this program helps you to connect to Internet using a modem. Current version (0.3.3) can work with GTK2, QT, or without GUI (command line interface). You can run Chestnut Dialer with user's priviliges (it doesn't require root permissions), but it requires read and/or write access to some system files (including the modem device). Chestnut Dialer uses standard pppd daemon to set up network interface.
