View Full Version : [ubuntu] Modem Dialing when Ubuntu Starts

May 15th, 2008, 01:05 PM
I'm using Ubuntu 8.04, with an external Zoom com port modem.

Every time Ubuntu boots up, some program (or daemon?) is dialing the modem. I do not want it to automatically establish the internet connection on booting, but I'm unable to locate where to turn off this setting. I have to manually turn off the modem every time to stop the process. I recently installed GnomePPP for a more "friendly" dialer (closer to KPPP, but not that good), but it doesn't appear to have the auto setting either.

Any ideas? Do I have ghosts in my machine?
