       pppclient, pppserver - point to point protocol

       pppclient [ -d ][ -b baudrate ][ -i myipaddr ][ -p peeripaddr ][ dialdevice ]

       pppserver [ -d ] ndev myipaddr firstipaddr firstdev [ baud0 baud1 ...  ]

       The  Point to Point Protocol is used to encapsulate Internet Protocol packets for transfer
       over serial lines or other protocol connections.

       Pppclient makes a connection to a PPP server and passes IP packets  over  the  connection.
       If  dialdevice  is  omitted,  standard  input  and  output are used as the connection.  If
       dialdevice begins with a slash, pppclient assumes it is a file  name,  open(2)'s  it,  and
       uses  the  result  as  the connection.  Otherwise, dialdevice is passed as the destination
       address to dial(2) to set up the connection.

       If the connection is successful, pppclient creates a pipe, pushes the IP  line  discipline
       onto  it,  and  sets  the  local  and remote addresses of the IP interface to myipaddr and
       peeripaddr.  It then loops transferring packets between the pipe and the  connection.   If
       either myipaddr or peeripaddr is omitted, pppclient requests them from the server.

       The options are

	      d      print debugging information.

	      b      baud rate of the serial line.

	      p      peer ip address (in case the peer asks for its ip address over IPCP).

	      i      the local ip address to be established for this connection.

       Pppserver  treats  serial lines as PPP connections, switching packets between them and the
       local machine.  It creates a pipe for a local IP interface (address myipaddr), opens a set
       of  serial  lines,  and switches packets between the local interface and the serial lines.
       Ndev  specifies	the  number  of  serial  devices  to  serve.   The  devices   are   named
       /dev/eia{firstdev}  through  /dev/eia{firstdev+ndev-1}.	 Their	remote	IP  addresses are
       firstipaddr through firstipaddr+ndev-1.	The default baud rate is 9600.	If any	arguments
       follow  firstdev  (baud0,  baud1,  ...), they are used as baud rates for the serial lines.
       The only option, -d, turns on debugging output.

       Both pppclient and pppserver accept all options defined in RFCs 1331 and 1332.

       Start up a server for serial lines /dev/eia[2-6] with remote  IP  addresses
       through and baud rates of 19200, 2400, 9600, 9600.  The local IP address is

	      pppserver 4 2 19200 2400
