3.8.6 Dialup PPP configuration

Install the pppconfig package to set up dialup PPP access.

     # apt-get install pppconfig
     # pppconfig
      ... follow the directions to configure dialup PPP
     # adduser user_name dip
      ... allow user_name to access dialup PPP

Dialup PPP access can be initiated by the user (user_name):

     $ pon ISP_name  # start PPP access to your ISP
      ... enjoy the Internet
     $ poff ISP_name # stop PPP access, ISP_name optional

See Configuring a PPP interface, Section 10.2.4 for more details.
