ppp — Point-to-Point Protocol Settings

Properties

Table 73. 

Key Name Value Type Default Value Value Description
baud
uint32
0
If non-zero, instruct pppd to set the serial port to the specified baudrate. This value should normally be left as 0 to automatically choose the speed.
crtscts
boolean
FALSE
If TRUE, specify that pppd should set the serial port to use hardware flow control with RTS and CTS signals. This value should normally be set to FALSE.
lcp-echo-failure
uint32
0
If non-zero, instruct pppd to presume the connection to the peer has failed if the specified number of LCP echo-requests go unanswered by the peer. The "lcp-echo-interval" property must also be set to a non-zero value if this property is used.
lcp-echo-interval
uint32
0
If non-zero, instruct pppd to send an LCP echo-request frame to the peer every n seconds (where n is the specified value). Note that some PPP peers will respond to echo requests and some will not, and it is not possible to autodetect this.
mppe-stateful
boolean
FALSE
If TRUE, stateful MPPE is used. See pppd documentation for more information on stateful MPPE.
mru
uint32
0
If non-zero, instruct pppd to request that the peer send packets no larger than the specified size. If non-zero, the MRU should be between 128 and 16384.
mtu
uint32
0
If non-zero, instruct pppd to send packets no larger than the specified size.
no-vj-comp
boolean
FALSE
If TRUE, Van Jacobsen TCP header compression will not be requested.
noauth
boolean
TRUE
If TRUE, do not require the other side (usually the PPP server) to authenticate itself to the client. If FALSE, require authentication from the remote side. In almost all cases, this should be TRUE.
nobsdcomp
boolean
FALSE
If TRUE, BSD compression will not be requested.
nodeflate
boolean
FALSE
If TRUE, "deflate" compression will not be requested.
refuse-chap
boolean
FALSE
If TRUE, the CHAP authentication method will not be used.
refuse-eap
boolean
FALSE
If TRUE, the EAP authentication method will not be used.
refuse-mschap
boolean
FALSE
If TRUE, the MSCHAP authentication method will not be used.
refuse-mschapv2
boolean
FALSE
If TRUE, the MSCHAPv2 authentication method will not be used.
refuse-pap
boolean
FALSE
If TRUE, the PAP authentication method will not be used.
require-mppe
boolean
FALSE
If TRUE, MPPE (Microsoft Point-to-Point Encryption) will be required for the PPP session. If either 64-bit or 128-bit MPPE is not available the session will fail. Note that MPPE is not used on mobile broadband connections.
require-mppe-128
boolean
FALSE
If TRUE, 128-bit MPPE (Microsoft Point-to-Point Encryption) will be required for the PPP session, and the "require-mppe" property must also be set to TRUE. If 128-bit MPPE is not available the session will fail.
