     ppp -- point to point protocol network interface

     options PPP_BSDCOMP
     options PPP_DEFLATE
     options PPP_FILTER

     pseudo-device ppp

     The ppp interface allows serial lines to be used as network interfaces using the
     Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP).  The ppp interface can use various types of compression and
     has many features over the SLIP protocol used by the sl(4) interface.

     Supported options are:
     options PPP_BSDCOMP   Enable support for BSD-compress (`bsdcomp') compression in ppp.
     options PPP_DEFLATE   Enable support for deflate compression in ppp.
     options PPP_FILTER    This option turns on pcap(3) based filtering for ppp connections.
			   This option is used by pppd(8) which needs to be compiled with
			   PPP_FILTER defined (the current default).

     ppp%d: af%d not supported .  The interface was handed a message with addresses formatted in
     an unsuitable address family; the packet was dropped.
