If you specify lurk, then IN ADDITION TO the usualy network 
connection attempts, it will initiate one when it detects that you go 

If you specify lurkonly, then it will initiate a network connection 
ONLY when it detects that you go online.

The first is fine if you don't have dial-on-demand support support 
installed.  However, if you do, then the rc564 program will cause 
your phone to dial at what could be unappropriate times (like when 
you're on the phone).
