The vii-ppp-scripts are yet another set of ppp scripts. They feature handling multiple ISPs, autosetting DNS from ISP, ability to have a different resolv.conf for each connection, phone billing and chatscripts.

It is lacking of:
Graphical interface
Friendly set-up
Explicit multiple modem support

Here are some key features of "viipppscripts":
No need to set nameservers manually; either get them automatically from the ISP (/etc/ppp/dns-resolvconf-up) or use a local named (/etc/ppp/dns-named-up)
Support for multiple ISPs; nameservers can be manually set separately for each if they're not given (/etc/ppp/dns-resolvconf-up)
More or less setup for UK ISP OneTel.Net already.
pppd options file nicely set up for fast performance
Customizable phone bill cost tracker, logged by user (/etc/ppp/ppp-connect)
Nice chat scripts, showing what happened on error (/etc/ppp/dial)
Initiating user can have programs executed when ppp comes up and goes down.
