Description:

Konnection is a GUI replacement for pon/poff. It shows your Internet configurations from /etc/ppp/peers/ and lets you choose which one to connect to (it does not show the sample files found in some distros, like "wvdial-pipe" etc).

Konnection is written in Gambas, so you need to have the Gambas interpreter /usr/bin/gbx installed (debian: apt-get install gambas-runtime gambas-gb-qt, should be done automatically now).

If you want to be able to use it as a non-root user, do:
chmod a+r /etc/ppp/peers/*

You can set Konnection as the connection script in pppd so that it pops up each time you want to access the Internet, this way you can configure a comfortable dial-on-demand setup with a GUI that lets you choose between all kinds of connections (will likely be automated in a future version).

Packages for other distributions are on the homepage.
