Hi all,

I've written the following script (named checkconn)
to be executed every 5 minutes by crond:


#! /bin/sh

ping -c 1 -W 3 www.dyndns.org > /dev/null

if [ $? -ne 0 ] ; then
    `/sbin/adsl-stop`
    `/sbin/adsl-start`
fi

... and here is the result of crontab -l:

0,10,20,30,40,50 * * * * /root/cron/checkconn
5,15,25,35,45,55 * * * * /root/cron/checkconn


Well, if I execute checkconn from the command line,
it works as expected, while when checkconn is invoked
by crond, it doesn't work...

Any idea?
j3d.
