re: thread594-1289665

pppd options 'nodetach' and 'detach' appear to invoke the same function internally (ref: ppp-2.4.2-6.4.RHEL4.src.rpm, options.c):

{ "nodetach", o_bool, &nodetach,
      "Don't detach from controlling tty", OPT_PRIO | 1 },
    { "-detach", o_bool, &nodetach,
      "Don't detach from controlling tty", OPT_ALIAS | OPT_PRIOSUB | 1 },
    { "updetach", o_bool, &updetach,
      "Detach from controlling tty once link is up",
      OPT_PRIOSUB | OPT_A2CLR | 1, &nodetach },

thanks, yma
