Hi Mikolaj,

Do you have your ppp0 connection on your hardware-node? Maybe you could make
a bridge and a veth device, so you'll be having an eth in your VPS which
will be detected by your network manager?
Look for more information at: http://wiki.openvz.org/Virtual_Ethernet_device

I hope it helped you.

I am using fedora 15 with gnome 3, whose network manager doesn't handle dsl
connections.I have working internet connection, though some programs, which
ask network manager if there is any connection to the internet, fail to work
since my connection is not detected.

Is there any way to setup virtual ethernet device, in such a way that all
traffic directed to it will be routed to ppp0 and also all traffic coming to
ppp0 will be send to this virtual device ? This way I the virtual ethernet
device would appear ( I hope ) to network manager as ordinary 'cable'
