PPPX(4)			 BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		       PPPX(4)

NAME
     pppx -- PPP multiplexer device

SYNOPSIS
     pseudo-device pppx

     #include <sys/socket.h>
     #include <sys/ioctl.h>
     #include <net/pipex.h>

DESCRIPTION
     The pppx driver works with	the npppd(8) daemon, allocating	a network in-
     terface for each Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) session by request from
     the daemon.  It also works	with pipex(4) to accelerate the	performance of
     packet forwarding and supports ioctls which are added by pipex(4).

     To	use pppx from npppd(8) the administrator needs to configure the	inter-
     face configuration	in npppd.conf(5).  Also	the administrator needs	to en-
     able pipex(4) by setting net.pipex.enable to `1' using sysctl(8).

SEE ALSO
     inet(4), inet6(4),	pipex(4), hostname.if(5), npppd.conf(5), netstart(8),
     npppd(8), sysctl(8)

HISTORY
     The pppx driver first appeared in OpenBSD 5.3.
