"rc.d/ppp restart" stops all running instances of ppp, but restarts only the one configured in
Start multiple instances of ppp (e.g. one for your dsl line and another with pptpclient to
use a pptp tunnel). Now do "rc.d/ppp restart" while both are running. After it completes,
only one of them is running.
Don't know how to fix this. If the tun device is known, the pid file could be used. But without that, it seems hard
to find the right one.
