smpppd.conf - global smpppd configuration file DESCRIPTION
When smpppd and smpppd-ifcfg start they first load their configuration from /etc/smpppd.conf, which contains basic information concerning their behavior. The configuration file /etc/smpppd.conf has a simple file format with a key = value pair in each line. OPTIONS
stop-on-disconnect = always, notdemand or never Shall the dialup connection be shutdown when the last frontend disconnects? Default value is always. reload-selects-default-provider = yes or no Shall a reload (SIGHUP) select the default provider for all interfaces or keep the current one? Default value is yes. open-inet-socket = yes or no Shall the smpppd open a internet connection, so that remote frontends can control the dialup connection? Default value is no. slp-register = yes or no Try to register at the slp daemon (service location protocol) if set to yes and an internet connection is opened. bind-address = <ip-address> Specify the ip address on which to listen for connections from remote frontends. The default is to listen on all addresses. host-range = <min ip-address> <max ip-address> Specify a host range from which remote frontends are allowed to connect to the smpppd. password = <password> The password used to authenticate remote frontends, UTF-8 encoded for those who really care. If the password is empty, no authenti- cation is done. number-of-loglines = <lines> The number of lines to keep in the log. Default is 250. accounting = yes or no Enable or disable accounting. Default is yes. alive-interval = <seconds> Interval for alive lines in the accounting log. A value of 0 disables alive lines. Default value is 900. debug = yes or no Turn debugging on or off. Default is off. This can also be controlled at runtime with cinternet. SEE ALSO

smpppd - SuSE Meta PPP Daemon DESCRIPTION
smpppd is a daemon that controls several internet connections. Use a frontend like cinternet , qinternet or kinternet to control the connections and retrieve status informations. Those frontends can also run on different hosts. The configuration of the dialup connections is done by YaST2 but there are some additional options available in the file /etc/smpppd.conf. smpppd is not intended for direct use. Use rcsmpppd instead. OPTIONS
These options are recognized by smpppd. --detach Detach from the controlling terminal. This is the default. --nodeatch Don't detach from the controlling terminal. -d, --debug Turn on debugging. --version Show program version and exit. --help Show help information and exit. BUGS
ISDN support is poor. SIGNALS
SIGHUP Reload the configuration. FILES
/etc/smpppd.conf Basic configuration. /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-* Configuration files for the interfaces. /etc/sysconfig/network/providers/* Configuration files for the providers. /var/run/smpppd/control Socket to communicate with local frontends. /var/run/smpppd/ifcfg-* Sockets to communicate with backends.
