Chapter 3. Configuring the PPP Dial-Out Connection

3.1. Backing up the original PPP configuration files

3.3. IP Aliasing

There are two basic modes of operation of the ppp driver: "Interactive" and "Automatic".

In Interactive mode you:

In Automatic mode, the PPP program silently watches what goes on inside the FreeBSD system and automagically connects and disconnects with your ISP as required to make the Internet a seamless element of your network.

In this section we'll address the configuration(s) for both modes with emphasis on configuring your `ppp` environment to operate in "Automatic" mode.

3.1. Backing up the original PPP configuration files

Note: More recent versions of FreeBSD have the examples files in /usr/share/examples/ppp, so this step may not be necessary.

Before making any changes to the files which are used by PPP you should make a copy of the default files that were created when the FreeBSD system was installed.

Log in as the 'root' user and perform the following steps:

Change to the '/etc directory:

# cd /etc

Make a backup copy the original files in the 'ppp' directory:

# cp -R ppp ppp.ORIGINAL

You should now be able to see both a 'ppp' and a 'ppp.ORIGINAL' subdirectory in the '/etc' directory.
