A PPP account is associated with a login script. This script
is used to control the various options of the
utility. A different login script is generally needed for every
type of PPP account (dedicated, fixed IP, etc.). Furthermore, some
configuration is needed in scripts like
pppdialin module provides a general solution to ease all that.
/usr/lib/linuxconf/lib/pppparmsis used to extract the parameters for a specific account and output them, in a useful way, for a shell script.
/usr/lib/linuxconf/lib/ppplogintakes advantage of the pppparms utility.
