MPD MULTI-LINK PPP DAEMON FOR FREEBSD
Written by Archie Cobbs <archie at whistle.com>
Based on IIJ-PPP by Toshiharu OHNO <tony-o at iij.ad.jp>
* WHAT IS IT?
A user-mode PPP daemon based on iij-ppp which supports multi-link PPP.
It is a complete re-write of the original iij-ppp code.
* IS THIS AN ALPHA RELEASE OR SOMETHING?
Yes! The bug to documentation ratio is very high!
* HOW DO I BUILD AND INSTALL IT?
make depend all install
* HOW DO I SET IT UP?
Check the "conf" directory for configuration file examples.
There are four configuration files:
mpd.conf - General configuration
mpd.links - Description of available links
mpd.script - Modem scripts
mpd.secret - Login/password pairs
If you're familiar with iij-ppp, the configuration method is
similar: commands read from a file.
* WHAT'S THE COPYRIGHT STATUS?
Berkeley style: see ``COPYRIGHT.iij'' and ``COPYRIGHT.whistle''.
* WHERE CAN I READ MORE ABOUT IT?
In the "docs" directory is a preliminary man page and some other
assorted stuff. In the "conf" directory are example configuration
files with descriptive comments.
* WHERE CAN I GO FOR HELP?
I'll do my best to answer any questions. I'll also try to get a
mailing list set up somewhere if demand warrants (any offers?).
This is being released in its woefully undocumented state due to
several people requesting it. Hopefully there will be more docs soon.
