anyone using diald ? or something better ? - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I have a satellite (DirecPC) based system with dial return (i.e. phone line). Everything now works fine under Linux but I'd like to add functionality similiar to that offered by the diald package. Most of the doentation for diald is more than four years old. Is anyone still using it ? Are there better packages for allowing users on a local lan to control a dial-up connection ? Tony...

    I have. But that does not give me the ability for remote machines on the
    LAN to monitor connections status and bring the link up manually when
    required.

    Ping. But why is bringing the link up manually required?

    Probably you want to hangup the connection (otherwise you do not need to
    dial-up since the "demand" option is doing it's job perfectly). Well if
    that's your case, try the "filter" option. I suppose that you can use
    something similar (or your firewall) to filter the dial-up procedure (in my
    case for example, the default firewall drops every package that is to
    routed to 80, BUT after the dial-up procedure I use my "normal" firewall).
    Hoped that I helped you.
