    Look in /var/log/ppp. I don't run ppp so I can't say for certain, but
    the log files may have access restriction and you may have to use sudo
    to read them.

    Thanks!

    but /var/log/ppp seems to be an empty folder:

    total 0
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 68 Apr 9 20:10 .
    drwxr-xr-x 87 root wheel 2958 Aug 28 03:15 ..

    I don't use ppp, I use a Sagem USB ADSL modem which is supposedly "ppp0" and
    connects automatically with routed vcmux.

    Thanks. I should have made clear that the modem I use is just like a bridge
    and there is no real ppp connection, it's simply DHCP.
