PPTPCTRL(8)		    System Manager's Manual		   PPTPCTRL(8)

NAME
       pptpctrl	- PPTP control connection manager

SYNOPSIS
       pptpctrl	 pptp-debug-flag  no-ipparam-flag ppp-options-value ppp-speed-
       value ppp-local-ip-value	ppp-remote-ip-value [ pptp-call-id ] [ ppp-bi-
       nary ] [	pptp-logwtmp ]

DESCRIPTION
       pptpctrl	 is usually run	by pptpd(8), but can also be run from inetd(8)
       if some of the features of pptpd(8), such as IP	pool  management,  and
       inbuilt TCP wrappers, are not required.

OPTIONS
       pptpctrl	 options  are  unconventional, as they are designed for	use by
       pptpd(8)	rather than users.  The	option order is	 critical.   Flag  op-
       tions  consist of a 0 or	1, and must be present.	 Value options consist
       of a 0, or a 1 followed by the value.  Either the 0 or both the	1  and
       the  value  must	 be  present.  The remaining options are optional, but
       must be present in the defined order.  The options are as follows:

       pptp-debug-flag
	      if set (1), enables debug	 messages  to  syslog  from  pptpctrl.
	      This has no effect on the	setting	of the PPP debug option.

       no-ipparam-flag
	      if  set,	pptpctrl  will	not  pass  the	client's IP address to
	      pppd(8) using the	ipparam	option.	 See the noipparam  option  in
	      pptpd.conf(5).

       ppp-options-value
	      file to use for PPP options.  See	the file option	in pppd(8).

       ppp-speed-value
	      value  for  the  speed  option  given  to	pppd(8).  Note that on
	      Linux, this parameter is ineffective.

       ppp-local-ip-value
	      if set, specifies	the IP address that pppd(8) is to use for  the
	      network  interface  on the server.  If not set, pppd(8) will de-
	      termine it based on options; usually it will be the ethernet ad-
	      dress of the server.

       ppp-remote-ip-value
	      if  set, specifies the IP	address	that pppd(8) is	to use for the
	      network interface	on the client.	If not set, pppd(8)  will  de-
	      termine it based on options; usually it will be the ethernet ad-
	      dress of the client, or an address given in chap-secrets.	  Must
	      be set if	ppp-local-ip-value is set.

       pptp-call-id
	      if  present, specifies the call identification for the PPTP ses-
	      sion.  If	omitted, the call identification  is  zero.   Normally
	      the ID is	allocated by pptpd(8) and passed to pptpctrl.

       ppp-binary
	      if  present, path	to the PPP binary to use.  If omitted, the de-
	      fault value is used.

       pptp-logwtmp
	      if present, specifies whether wtmp(5) should be updated as users
	      connect and disconnect.

FILES
       none.
