PPP Keepalive is a perl script intended to maintain a persistent dialup connection. When the script redials it can then send an email containing your dynamic IP address to an email account or ftp the address to a server. This way you can obtain the current IP address for your box remotely. This also introduces security issues, so use at your own risk.
|Operating Systems||POSIX Linux|
Release Notes: The pppkeep_params file has been made into a module and the code in the main script has been cleaned up. The script has been changed so that, instead of pinging a site to test for a connection, it uses the LWP::Simple Perl module to request a page from a list of known good Web sites. Should all page requests fail, the script attempts to redial.
Release Notes: Initial release.
