PPP(4)		       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual			PPP(4)

NAME
     ppp -- point to point protocol network interface

SYNOPSIS
     device ppp

DESCRIPTION
     The ppp interface allows serial lines to be used as network interfaces
     using the point-to-point protocol.	 The ppp interface can use various
     types of compression and has many features	over the sl(4) protocol.

     Each ppp interface	is created at runtime using interface cloning.	This
     is	most easily done with the ifconfig(8) create command or	using the
     cloned_interfaces variable	in rc.conf(5).

DIAGNOSTICS
     ppp%d: af%d not supported.	 The interface was handed a message with
     addresses formatted in an unsuitable address family; the packet was
     dropped.

SEE ALSO
     inet(4), intro(4),	sl(4), pppd(8),	pppstats(8)

BUGS
     Currently,	only the ip(4) protocol	is supported.
