NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     addpppin -	add a PPP incoming entry.

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/sysadm/privbin/addppppin -n loginName/sysName	-t connType [ -p ] [
     -a	authType ] [ -y	appType	] [ -l localIPAddr ] [ -r remoteIPAddr ] [ -h
     remoteHostName ] [	-fu ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     Addpppin adds a PPP incoming entry	to the system to enable	the named
     account or	system to have the right to call into this host	using the PPP
     protocol. Please refer to PPP(1M) for a detail description	of the input

     It	is important to	note that if you do not	set up an incoming connection,
     a remote workstation may be able to connect to your workstation using an
     existing user account, such as "guest".  This can be an important
     security issue.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     -n	loginName/sysName
	       LoginName or sysName is the unique name given to	identify the
	       incoming	entry.

     -t	connType
	       The type	of equipement at the physical layer. It	supports
	       "MODEM" and "ISDN" and is case insensitive.

     -p	       Addpppin	will request the user to enter a password on stdin
	       that the	calling	account	or system must use to login.

     -a	authType
	       It supports "PAP", "CHAP", "NOPAP", and "NOCHAP"	and they are
	       case insensitive.

     -y	appType
	       The type	of applications. When not specified or specified as 0,
	       it means	simple applications and	no special parameters are
	       added. When it is equal to 1, it	means Audio/Video application
	       and special parameters are added	to customize by	this command.

     -l	localIPAddr
	       IP address of the local host in dotted notation.	It is only
	       needed if the IP	address	is different from the IP address of
	       the local machine.

     -r	remoteIPAddr
	       The IP address of the remote host in dotted notation. If	it is
	       not specified, the remote host address is obtained through
