ADSL-CONNECT(8) 		     System Manager's Manual			  ADSL-CONNECT(8)

NAME
       adsl-connect - Shell script to manage a PPPoE link

SYNOPSIS
       adsl-connect [config_file]

       adsl-connect interface user [config_file]

DESCRIPTION
       adsl-connect  is a shell script which manages an ADSL connection using the Roaring Penguin
       user-space PPPoE client.  If you omit config_file, the  default	file  /etc/sysconfig/net-
       work-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0 is used.  If you supply interface and user, then they override the
       Ethernet interface and user-name settings in the configuration file.

       Note that normally, you should not invoke adsl-connect directly.  Instead, use  adsl-start
       to bring up the ADSL connection.

       adsl-connect  first reads a configuration file.	It then brings up a PPPoE connection.  If
       the connection ever drops, a message is logged to syslog, and adsl-connect  re-establishes
       the  connection.   In  addition,  each  time the connection is dropped or cannot be estab-
       lished, adsl-connect executes the script /etc/ppp/adsl-lost  if	it  exists  and  is  exe-
       cutable.

       The shell script adsl-stop causes adsl-connect to break out of its loop, bring the connec-
       tion down, and exit.

TECHNICAL DETAILS
       adsl-connect uses the following shell variables from the configuration file:

       ETH    The Ethernet interface connected to the ADSL modem (for example, eth0).

       USER   The ADSL user-id (for example, b1xxnxnx@sympatico.ca).

       PIDFILE
	      A file in which to write the process-ID of the adsl-connect process  (for  example,
	      /var/run/pppoe.pid).   Two additional files ($PIDFILE.pppd and $PIDFILE.pppoe) hold
	      the process-ID's of the pppd and pppoe processes, respectively.

       By using different configuration files with different PIDFILE  settings,  you  can  manage
       multiple  PPPoE	connections.  Just specify the configuration file as an argument to adsl-
       start and adsl-stop.
