Configuring PPP asynchronous serial driver support
To implement PPP support for a third-party smart serial
device on an existing system:
Log in as root.
Create an /etc/pppstack file (see the new
that defines the third-party vendor's
driver and associated STREAMS module(s).
When the PPP daemon (see
configures a PPP interface, it will configure
the PPP stack to use the third-party driver and modules
defined in /etc/pppstack.
If a serial device does not have an entry in /etc/pppstack,
the PPP daemon uses the SCO PPP stack instead.
Send a SIGHUP signal to the PPP daemon to
make it re-read its configuration files:
kill -HUP `cat /etc/pppd.pid`
The installation procedure for the third-party driver and
PPP stack software may perform some or all of
these steps for you. Refer to the documentation that was
provided with the smart serial port device hardware for
Example PPP endpoint configurations
