Hi,

I was wondering if there was a way of passing variables to the login 
script at the time of execution.  The system I log into requires that a 
ppp process is started form the terminal server command line (i.e. no PAP 
authentication - the user logs in to the terminal server as a normal 
login).  The thing that worries me is that I have my password stored in 
plain text in my ppp.conf file.  What I would like to have is for the PPP 
process to prompt me for my password when the login script starts.  Is 
this possible ??

thanks,
