NAME
       qADSL - Auto-login & keep-alive for Internet connections.

SYNOPSIS
       qadsl [-h] [-c conffile]	[-p pidfile] [-loPsdvV]

DESCRIPTION
       Frustrated about	having to "log in" to your paid	Internet connection?

       qadsl  is  a  small  utility that automates the login process to	Telia,
       COMHEM, Tiscali and other Internet Service Providers, ISPs. It features
       a  keep-alive  daemon  that  periodically connects to your ISP ensuring
       that your connection to the Internet are	not logged out all of  a  sud-
       den.

       qadsl  works  for any type of connection	where your ISP has put a login
       server in your way.

OPTIONS
       qadsl options are available in traditional  POSIX  one  letter  options
       prefixed	with a single '-' or the new popular --long-options style.

	-h, --help
	      Displays a summary of the	command	line options.

	-c, --conf-file=file
	      Use    settings	from   file   insted   of   default   /usr/lo-
	      cal/etc/qadsl.conf or $HOME/.qadslrc

       -p, --pid-file=file
	      Use file as pid/lock file	instead	of default /var/run/qadsl.pid

       -P, --port=PORT
	      Use PORT to connect to on	LOGIN_SERVER.

	-l, --login
	      Login to the given LOGIN_SERVER.

	-o, --logout
	      Try to logout, close the Internet	connection.

	-s, --status
	      Display status of	qadsl daemon.

	-V, --version
	      Displays version informaiton.

	-v, --verbose
	      Verbose, print more information at runtime.

	-d, --debug
	      Debug, print even	more information, huge amounts.

USAGE
       First setup your	qadsl.conf file	with the information you have received
       from  your  ISP.	 It should be at least the name	(or IP)	of their login
       server, your login ID and and password.

       Different providers have	setup their login  servers  differently.   See
       the sample qadsl.conf file included in this package for help on setting
       up qadsl	for your ISP.

       If you have problems connecting the flags --verbose and --debug are re-
       ally  useful  tools that	let you	see all	the interactions between qadsl
       and the login server. However, please note that when the	 login	daemon
       has  started you	will not see anything more on your screen. Instead you
       have to consult the system  logfiles.  On  a  Debian  system  the  file
       /var/log/daemon.log is where qadsl logs go.

FILES
       /usr/local/etc/qadsl.conf
	      Usually the location of a	system wide qadsl configuration	file.

       $HOME/.qadslrc
	      User configuration file, takes precedent over any	global file.

SEE ALSO
       The qadsl.conf (5) man page describes the componentes of	the configura-
       tion file.

REQUIREMENTS
       Telia AB	ADSL service, COMHEM Cable internet service, Tiscali  Internet
       (ADSL  or broadband), or	similiar service based on Orbyte Wireless Sys-
       tem.
