smpppd.conf - global smpppd configuration file


When smpppd and smpppd-ifcfg start they first load their configuration from /etc/smpppd.conf, which contains basic information concerning their behavior.

The configuration file /etc/smpppd.conf has a simple file format with a key = value pair in each line.


stop-on-disconnect = always, notdemand or never
Shall the dialup connection be shutdown when the last frontend disconnects? Default value is always.
reload-selects-default-provider = yes or no
Shall a reload (SIGHUP) select the default provider for all interfaces or keep the current one? Default value is yes.
open-inet-socket = yes or no
Shall the smpppd open a internet connection, so that remote frontends can control the dialup connection? Default value is no.
slp-register = yes or no
Try to register at the slp daemon (service location protocol) if set to yes and an internet connection is opened.
bind-address = <ip-address>
Specify the ip address on which to listen for connections from remote frontends. The default is to listen on all addresses.
host-range = <min ip-address> <max ip-address>
Specify a host range from which remote frontends are allowed to connect to the smpppd.
password = <password>
The password used to authenticate remote frontends, UTF-8 encoded for those who really care. If the password is empty, no authentication is done.
