I hope you're not running *as* root...

If you want to use command lines to go on- and off-line, do it like
this:

/sbin/ifup ppp0
/sbin/ifup ppp0

Much simpler, and I'm not sure if you're calling scripts that are meant
to be used directly, but those command lines are what I see being used
elsewhere as *a* proper way to take an interface on- or off-line.

If you set up via "neat" (that's the program name for a GUI tool for
configuring networks), there's an option to allow any user to bring the
interface on- or off-line.  It sets a USERCTL=yes parameter into the
appropriate network configuration scripts, which I see replicated in at
least three places:

/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-pp0
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-pp0
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-pp0

I don't know which are used by what.
