ADSL on demand

The Speedtouch 510 is sometimes used in a dial up configuration, where the user only pays when the modem is online.

For windows there is a program available that connects and disconnects the modem. Of course, no such program is provided for Linux, so I made two scripts, one to bring the connection up and one to bring it down. Simply put these scripts in /usr/local/bin and make sure they are executable.
