I want to dial in and cvsup every night.

# check if ppp interface is up
netstat -rn | grep -q tun

# if not, dial in
if [ $retval -eq 0 ]; then
echo Connecting...
ppp -ddial nerc
sleep 60

echo Updating ports collection
/usr/local/bin/cvsup -g -L0 /home/jcm/.admin/ports-supfile

I wake up to see cvsup waiting for a connection...
