pppoe-start - Shell script to bring up a PPPoE link


pppoe-start [config_file]

pppoe-start interface user [config_file]


pppoe-start is a shell script which starts the Roaring Penguin user-space PPPoE client. If you omit config_file, the default file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0 is used. If you supply interface and user, then they override the Ethernet interface and user-name settings in the configuration file.
