Description: Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) daemon.
The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) provides a standard way to transmit
datagrams over a serial link, as well as a standard way for the machines
at either end of the link (the "peers") to negotiate various optional
characteristics of the link. Using PPP, a serial link can be used to
transmit Internet Protocol (IP) datagrams, allowing TCP/IP connections
between the peers.
This package contains pppd with PAM support built-in, so `ppp-pam'
package is obsolete.

Description: PPP over Ethernet driver
