Hi-

I just got my home 2.1.0-RELEASE box to auto dial to my work dialins
(which are just normal shell account logins that I run slirp on).  What I
was wondering is if there is some way to automatically list multiple phone
numbers to try.  With UUCP there is...you can list multiple lines in the
HDB Systems file or use 'alternate' in the Taylor 'sys' file.  And I want
to do the same sort of thing with my PPP script.  There's 3 or 4 different
phone numbers I want to try...the 'man ppp' said not to put blanks in the
number on the 'set phone' command, so I assume I can't just list a bunch
of phone numbers there.  It'd be nice if I could list multiple configs

    slirp1:
        set phone NUMBER1
    slirp2:
        set phone NUMBER2
    slirp3:
        set phone NUMBER3

then do 'ppp -auto slirp1 slirp2 slirp3' or just have a line like this:

    slirp:
        set phone NUMBER1 NUMBER2 NUMBER3

and do 'ppp -auto slirp'.  Right now, I just do this:

    slirp:
        set phone NUMBER1
        set dial ..... ATDT\\T CONNECT-ATDTNUMBER2-CONNECT-ATDTNUMBER3-CONNECT

but that's kinda tedious.

Thanx,
