I am configuring a CentOS 5.2 box to act as a gateway. After doing the initial configuration I want the ADSL connection that I configured not to try and start when doing a
/etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart or
service network restart.
This may seem like a no brainer but I’m posting it because it wasn’t obvious to me.
Edit the ifcfg-ppp0 file and change the ONBOOT parameter to no. Which means the network script will skip it.
This was done on:
