Thanks for the link.

I checked the page and the only parameter I can find that is referenced 
in "man pppd" is "lcp-echo-interval" (along with the other lcp_ ones). 
But "keepalive" does not seem to be part of pppd, nor is "connect_poll" so I 
am not sure where to put them at all.

I will try the lcp-echo-interval one, not that the man page makes much sense 
to me, but it has a kind of "stay busy" flavour about it :)

The irksome thing is that the ppp0 link does not break, it stays up and all 
seems well but there is no data moving.
