PPP  is considered a Security RIsk.
That is why Root/Adm permission is required to start a PPP connection.

Our general recommendation is to:
$ sudo modprobe martian_dev
$ sudo martian_modem
will setup the modem.  Then
$ sudo wvdialconf
will create a /etc/wvdial.conf  , which you can edit with:
$ sudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf
removing the ;  <  > symbols as you put in your personal info.
Also add a line:
Carrier Check  =  no
---
This wvdialconf does not need to be repeated.
Start dialouts with:
$ sudo wvdial

If you have further problems, do write to the List.
We do strongly recommend that you get use to such manual usage, before
using graphical interfaces and changing permissions.
