2. PPP Accounts

PPP accounts are for users who dial in to your system via a modem.

Most of the parameters for a PPP account should be filled in the same as a regular login account, so see login if you need more information on login name, full name, home directory, user ID, and the mail settings.

You can't set the group for a PPP user; all PPP accounts are in the pppusers group.

The default command interpreter or login shell for a PPP user is /usr/lib/linuxconf/lib/ppplogin, which is a script for handling PPP logins. If you have another command interpreter script for handling PPP logins, you'll need to add it to linuxconf's choices using Config--Networking--Users Accounts--Available PPP Shells.
