If you press the tool button in the epplet (with the hammer symbol) the configuration screen will appear. In the current versions the following options are configurable with this dialog:
The net.dework interface to watch. The current implementation only supports ISDN, so ippp0 is a useful default value. Later versions will support ppp0 and other net.dework interfaces as well.
The command which will be executed to establish the
connection. The default value of super isdnon
requires the program
super which enables
regular users to make privileged calls. The super
isdnon is mapped to isdnctrl dial ippp0 in my
The command which will be executed to hang-up the connection. The default value super isdnoff is mapped to isdnctrl hang-up ippp0. The following part of the super configuration is responsible for this functionality:
:define Internet.de torsten@myrkr isdnon "/usr/sbin/isdnctrl dial ippp0" info="Start an new ISDN connection" \ $Internet.de isdnoff "/usr/sbin/isdnctrl hangup ippp0" info="Close the ISDN connection" \ $Internet.de
Both commands are executed using /bin/sh -c so you can use every internal shell command if you like. And never ever make this epplet suid or sgid, it would be too dangerous.
This is the number of seconds between a new column in the history display is drawn.
The maximum number of seconds to wait for connection establishment and hang-up to complete. While the epplet is waiting for these the standby LED (orange) is shown.
There are other configuration options (stored in the file
which are currently unsupported by the user interface. These
includes the images for the various states, the number of
seconds between online checking, and between redrawing the
connection time. Some of them might be supported in future
