NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       startppp  - Starts the pppd daemon for PPP dial-in connections

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       A system configured for PPP  dial-in  connections  answers
       calls  from  remote systems.  If your system is configured
       as a PPP dial-in system, a getty process  is  continuously
       run on the serial line that is connected to a modem.  When
       a call comes in, getty prompts for a login name.   If  the
       login   name   matches  a  PPP  user  name  entry  in  the
       /etc/passwd file, getty starts startppp as a login  shell.
       The  startppp program then invokes the /usr/sbin/pppd command
 with no arguments.

       See Network Administration: Connections for information on
       setting up your system as a PPP dial-in system.
