Configuring the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP)

Outgoing PPP over a modem

``A simple outgoing PPP configuration'' shows an example relationship between a bundle and a link device that would be used to configure a simple outgoing PPP connection over a modem to a remote access server named Annex.

A simple outgoing PPP configuration

The bundle is configured to use the IP network protocol. The IP protocol settings associated with the bundle define IP address negotiation, packet filtering and routing, VJ header compression, and whether any DNS name servers that the remote access server advertizes should be used.

The single link device is configured to use the Link Control Protocol (LCP) which controls asynchronous control character mapping, magic number negotiation, and link quality determination.

The remote access server may use one or more of the following methods to authenticate the incoming user before it will set up the PPP link:

NOTE: The name that the remote access server should authenticate can be specified in the chat script for login authentication, or it can be specified in the bundle's configuration as the override name for both received and transmitted PAP or CHAP packets. There must be a remote PAP or CHAP secret defined for the name in the local authentication database.
