Try counting lines in /etc/ppp/connect-errors if it exists. This snippet
obtained by "man chat". I just discovered (and am currently using) the
"call" option of pppd (man pppd) but haven't yet figured out how to hide
the usernmae/password at the ISP end from a user working through "pppd
call ispname".
