pppoe-start - Man Page

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 RP-PPPoE 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.
