Projects / x-wvdial


x-wvdial is an X11-based frontend for wvdial, a simple dialer for Linux. No extra libraries are required. It supports both PPP and ISDN. It can also sync your clock to network time, ping your host, fetch your mail, and run slrnpull for downloading news articles right after connecting.

        Release Notes: x-wvdial now uses 'hwclock' instead of 'clock' because of a nasty bug where some older verions of the GNU 'clock' command failed to write the system time to CMOS if the hardware clock was using UTC. It also now searches for 'rdate' if 'netdate' cannot be found.
