PPP(4)			 BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual			PPP(4)

NAME
     ppp -- point to point protocol network interface

SYNOPSIS
     pseudo-device ppp [count]

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.

DIAGNOSTICS
     ppp%d: af%d not supported.	 The interface was handed a message with ad-
     dresses 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.
