I have a Verizon USB 3G modem that I want the connection to automatically start with on boot. In my Debian based system in /etc/network/interfaces I have the following:
auto ppp0 iface ppp0 inet ppp provider verizon
When it's booting, everything appears to be working as I see TTYACM0 acquiring the network address from my modem. However, when I ifconfig, my ppp0 interface does not appear, thus it appears that ppp has not been configured. Manually running
pppd call verizon from the terminal successfully intiates the connection. Why is it not working on bootup?
